Charlestown is a walkable, family-friendly neighbourhood with convenient options for restaurants, bars, and cafés. Part of the neighbourhood's charm is its friendly people. Take in the natural beauty of the sea and beaches—or broaden your horizons with some local entertainment. With hotels to suit everyone's tastes, Charlestown serves as a good starting point for exploring the greater Kahibah area.
The local library will impress, as will other attractions. Study the collections at Newcastle Art Gallery, Maritime Centre, or Newcastle Regional Museum. For local culture, consider Maitland Gaol. Notable landmarks include Christ Church Cathedral and Hunter Wetlands Centre. Create some family memories at Merewether Ocean Baths and Hunter Region Botanic Gardens.
Shopping, surfing, and being pampered at a spa are a few popular activities in the area. Soak up some sun at Dixon Park Beach and Nobbys Head Beach. Explore nature at Glenrock State Conervation, Blackbutt Reserve, and Newcastle Ocean Baths. If you have some more time, pay a visit to Newcastle International Hockey Centre, EnergyAustralia Stadium, or Energy Australia Stadium.
Why not visit Newcastle Showground, University of Newcastle, and Belmont Golf Course while you're here? Stockton Sandspit, Stockton Sand Dunes, and Munmorah State Conservation Area are other top spots to see.
