Rode bicycles from Carrington to Newcastle Beach along the beautiful foreshore park - easy access and a great way to spend a Sunday.

The Foreshore is a beautiful place to go,have fun with the family,and just to walk along the waterfront is a lovely way to enjoy our city.I don't dislike anything along this stretch of walkway.

Very pleasing on the eye. The Foreshore was a great walk. The Restaurants on Queens Wharf are a bit pricey, but very nice food.

A beautiful park right on the edge of a magnificent harbour. The yachts were racing and formed a wonderful backdrop for all the Father's Day family picnics. The first day of Spring, visiting my family in a surprisingly beautiful city. More people should make the trip up from Sydney.

The foreshore does a great Anzac dawn service. But also walking and riding paths, many photo opportunities, beaches and lighthouse, restaurants. Sensational view in the middle of an easily accessibly city

A lovely place to visit. Good play area for kids. Lots of space for picnics. Very restful. Nice to even just walk through the park on the way to Nobby's Beach.

Foreshore Park is always bustling with people out for a walk or looking around. People are always willing to help tourists and it is a very safe place to visit.

I visit this area frequently with my grandchildren. The children enjoy not only the activity area but the pond & the cycle area. There are barbecue facilities also. This is great for caregivers as there is adequate seating at all areas. This is also a fantastic area for families & birthday parties. It is a safe area for all &... More

We were in Newcastle for the Australia Day long weekend, so there were live concerts and plenty of rides for all to enjoy. When there is no function there, its a very nice park for kids to run in and skateboard around or great walk along the harbour edge and its a flat even walk
