Attractions & Activities in Newcastle

When you stay Rydges, you stay local, and there’s nothing quite like a truly local experience.

Calling all gin lovers… my local tip is absolutely for you and anyone who’s gin-curious! A stop by Earp Distillery, Carrington is a must and my go to is the No.8 dry, a true classic and refreshing gin. For those wanting a bit more kick you can’t go wrong with the Portside, this gin was handcrafted as tribute to the ships and crews “that brought our family to our harbourside home”.

Set amongst the eateries, bars and public spaces in the vibrant Honeysuckle precinct, Rydges Newcastle is in the ideal location to see everything Newcastle has to offer.

Days can be spent wandering through shopping centres and boutiques, perusing museums and galleries, and café-hopping in town. For those seeking fresh air, there’s the Bathers Way Coastal Walk, Bogey Hole, Fort Scratchley and Nobbys Head. And if you’re looking to surf, swim and sunbake, Newcastle is home to amazing beaches, like Nobbys Beach, Newcastle Beach and Merewether Beach. Of an evening, you might cheer on the Newcastle Knights or Newcastle Jets at McDonald Jones Stadium, or explore the city’s countless bars and eateries.
