Port to Port is set up with the traveller in mind. Every day we set time aside for riders and their support crew to indulge in a variety of tourist activities in the region. With this in mind, we encourage you to bring friends and family to the event!


This is Newcastle – a city of contrast, change and endless possibility. A city bound by a working harbour and glorious surf beaches and forged from coal, timber and sweat. As Australia's second-oldest and New South Wales second largest city, Newcastle has moved on from its industrial steel city image to embrace a new outlook.

Now renowned for its festivals and events, laid back culture, arts scene and the clever repurposing of buildings; it's making a name for itself as a haven for lovers of fine fare, boutique clothing and homewares, craft beer and quality local wines.

There is always something to discover in Newcastle! Discover more at visitnewcastle.com.au or by searching Newcastle, Australia on Facebook.
