...Newcastle walking tours that are steeped in the past, grateful for the present and confident about the future.

We created this tour to provide a fun introduction to Newcastle's fascinating history and modern day cultural delights. Travelling by foot from beaches to laneways, we explore highlights of the thriving new arts scene and learn about how new businesses have revitalised the city centre. 

We also explore Newcastle's heritage by learning about Aboriginal heritage, colonial, maritime, and industrial life, and secret architectural wonders. 


10am - 12:30pm Thursday - Sunday. Includes a 20 minute refreshment break at a local cafe.


Your tour starts at Queens Wharf, 150 Wharf Road. We will meet on the colourful paving between Queens Wharf Hotel and Six Degrees Cafe. Look for your guide in a black Newcastle Afoot t-shirt - don't worry, we will be easy to find! We will walk through historic Newcastle East, and finish back where we started.
