World-class beaches, cafés and wineries await when you travel from Sydney to Newcastle on a luxurious Greyhound bus.

Like Sydney, Newcastle is bound by a harbour and glorious beaches – but whereas more than five million people call Sydney home, Newcastle’s population sits at just over 300,000, making it a quieter and less crowded option for a holiday.

Eight spectacular beaches surround Newcastle’s city centre, while the World Heritage-listed rainforest, Barrington Tops, and Australia’s largest saltwater lake, Lake Macquarie, are close by. It’s a great place to go walking, surfing and cycling, especially if you love coffee – the city is filled with cool cafés, most of which are located near parks, beaches and wide open spaces, so you can enjoy the scenery while you sip.

If you’re in the mood for something stronger, Newcastle is also the gateway for the world-famous Hunter Valley wine region; the birthplace of Australia’s vino industry.

On the bus from Sydney to Newcastle, you’ll enjoy all the luxuries that come standard on a modern Greyhound coach, including reclining leather seats, free WiFi, in-seat USB chargers and panoramic windows!
