Newcastle is home to several beautiful beaches, however, Nobbys Beach is one of the most popular. The beach is patrolled all year round, making it an enjoyable and safe place to swim in the inviting turquoise waters. Newcastle is known to be one of the best surfing locations in Australia, and Nobbys is no different, with the rips and waves attracting surfers too. The beach also tempts anglers, who love to fish for luderick, bream, snapper, and tailor from the rocks.
Nobbys is a large and scenic beach, making it a perfect place to just relax on the sand and soak up some sun, or build sandcastles. The volleyball nets offer an alternative for those who are feeling more energetic. The rock pool at the southern end of the beach is extremely popular with snorkelers at high tide.
You will also find toilets, showers, car parking, and a shaded picnic area.
