“Foreshore Park”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Family fun, picnics, swings, playgrounds, toilets, pack the esky and head there. Walk down the promenade for icecream, pizza, climb up the winding staircase the magnificent 180degrees panoramic view of the city and suburbs, then ride the ferry to Stockton....

“The night of excitement”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

What a beautiful sunset foreshore park was almost looking as good as abs. It was amazing, the sound of children playing, dogs barking, the sunset was lovely as we looked out to the sea, it was amazing. I put my arm around her and popped the question and she just moved over to me, her soft voice whispered into my ears, this had to be the best day of my life. Why go to a hotel when you can have such a great view from foreshore park.

“Away from big city madness - Newcastle's Inner Harbour”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

Cross the railway line at Civic Station - just beside Hunter Street - and there is Newcastle's gem of a museum - free entry - a recreation of the former steel-works - a kind of lights to dazzle and noise - the pouring of molten steel recreation of the former steelworks to delight everyone - with lots of oral stories and videos and the history of this important industry - now gone - a room of delights for little and big kids - how it works hands-on - then the social history of the city from the Indigenous folk through its convict stages to its industrialisation, coal mining - the great depression - two world wars (and other military entanglements) - all chronicled with well-thought-out displays - and special exhibitions to draw one back again and again! And a cafeteria!

“Great spot for summer afternoons”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Take the towel and soccer ball and kick back and enjoy a wonderful park adjacent to a working harbour.

Would have to be one of the best places in the Eastern Seaboard to sit and relax as well as provide enough space to kick the ball and spend time with kids.
