In the past few months we’ve loved getting out and finding family friendly things to do in Newcastle.
With a one and three year old, we’re always looking for new events and places to go. Whether it’s parks, beaches, day trips and more, we’re discovering that Newcastle has so much to offer young families.
As we’re approaching the Summer holidays, I thought I’d share our current top 5 family friendly things to do in Newcastle:
5 Family Friendly things to do in Newcastle!
1. Christmas Lights Spectacular at Hunter Valley Gardens
We visited the Christmas Lights Spectacular a couple of weeks ago and the kids loved it. So did the grown ups!
It’s on until January 26th 2017 so you’ll have lots of opportunities to visit in the holidays. You can read my review here.
2. Newcastle Museum
The current exhibitions at Newcastle Museum will make your little Scientists and Historians so happy!
Better still, a lot of the exhibits are free! You can find out more here.
3. Blackbutt Reserve
If you’re kids love nature and animals, they’ll have a blast at Blackbutt Reserve. The park has a variety of things to do such as nature trails, wildlife exhibits, picnic settings and a kid’s playground.
4. Warners Bay Foreshore
If your kids love to run, cycle or scoot, the foreshore at Warners Bay is perfect for them! It’s only two hours north of Sydney on beautiful Lake Macquarie.
5. Lunch at Caves Beachside Hotel
Caves Beachside Hotel is probably one of my favourite family-friendly lunch spots in the area. It’s only 90 minutes north of Sydney and just over 30 minutes from Newcastle.
Situated right next to the beach, the food is great and affordable with a range of kid’s meals too. There’s even a shaded play park for the littles to burn off some steam while the parents take take in the gorgeous view!
It’s open daily from 11.00am to 9.00pm for lunch and dinner and breakfast on Sunday is from 8.00am to 11.00am. Find out more here.
So if you’re in the Newcastle area this Summer, why not check out these days out with your family!
