Our Coastline


Newcastle is situated on a spectacular coastline. The sustainable management of this coastline is required to retain the environmental, social, cultural and economic values of our coast for the enjoyment of the community now and into the future

Did you know?

The Hunter River divides the coastline into two distinct coastal areas. The coast to the south is characterised by pocket beaches surrounded by tall coastal cliffs, while Stockton Bight located north of the river forms the longest stretch of sandy beach in NSW.
