Newcastle Golf Club


Located at the mouth of the Hunter River, two hour's drive from Sydney, Newcastle (formerly known as the Stockton Course) is one of only two courses in NSW given international recognition by the panel of experts rating the World's Top 100 Courses.

A true championship course of 6200 metres (6780 yards), it is based on undulating sand dunes like those of the great historic links of Great Britain and Ireland.

However, instead of fairways lined by gorse and heather, Newcastle is carved out of a forest of Eucalypts and angophoras abounding in native flora and fauna, including kookaburras, bearded dragons and kangaroos, making it a delightful as well as a challenging course to play.

Facilities include a full-length practice fairway, large chipping and putting greens, fully serviced Pro Shop, bar and catering.

Tourist Drive 2 - Bucketts Way


The Bucketts Way is the second oldest tourist drive in the state, and for good reason, it is a scenic detour off the Pacific Highway. Tourist Drive 2 (the Bucketts Way) takes you through tall forest, rolling green valleys and pretty towns and villages.

This scenic route is popular with motorcycle riders as it provides one of the best road touring experiences in NSW. Motorists will discover the historic town of Stroud, the beautifully located regional town of Gloucester, the hillside village of Krambach and the riverside village of Tinonee.

Named after the Bucketts Mountains overlooking Gloucester, it was the former alignment of State Highway 10 (changed in 1931 to the Pacific Highway), between Raymond Terrace and Taree between August 1928 and 1952.

The Bucketts Way provides a vital link to Barrington Tops via Gloucester and access to the New England region via Thunderbolts Way.
