Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / New South Wales / Greater Newcastle / Newcastle / Nobbys Beach
Perfect your kite surfing skills at Nobbys Beach, the area’s safest and most popular beach. Lifeguards are on duty every day of the week here, year round, making this part of the coast a favorite spot for inexperienced swimmers and apprentice surfers. This is the first beach on the popular Bather’s Way coastal walk, featuring rest areas with picnic shelters, free barbecue facilities, and food kiosks. Spend a day swimming, surfing, or relaxing on the sand, and be sure to visit Fort Scratchley, located atop a knoll overlooking the beach. The fort is a good vantage point to see and photograph the harbor and Stockton Beach across the water.

Nobbys Beach reviews
Nice place to go in Newcastle. The sand is fine and does not stick on your feet. Nice to play on the beach , walk the dog, sit on the fine sand and watch the waves. Or stroll up the lighthouse...

One of the best beaches I've been to. It was not crowded. The sand was soft. Fantastic views. We went early in the morning on a Sunday, although there were lots of cars already, we could still find parking. There's essential amenities here.
Visited this beach today.. spend time playing volleyball, walk in the sand, walk to Macquarie pier.. really enjoyed it.
