Newcastle Foreshore by onewing

Newcastle Foreshore

There is nothing nicer on a sunny day than a walk along the foreshore in Newcastle. There are so many different things to see along the way, from the Maritime Museum at one end to Nobby’s Lighthouse at the other. You can watch the ships being ushered out of the harbour, stop for lunch at the many cafes and restaurants along the way, or in my case just spend time taking hundreds of photos.

If you are feeling energetic you can climb the phallic-like Queens Wharf Tower seen in this picture, it is 40.3 metres high and has 180 steps to the top.

Went there once when on a touring holiday. Think it very under-rated. does that tower have any function?

I LOVE the sea...is it warm?
August 5th, 2014

@leestevo Thanks Lee Ann I love going to Newcastle, so much to see.
August 5th, 2014  
@princessm The tower only has a function as a look out as far as I am aware.

@hermann Thanks Sally, hopefully by the end of the month I will have convinced you to visit Newcastle. It is about 60 km from where I live.

@gigiflower No we didn't get rained on. It does that quite often where you expect it to honk down and it passes us by.

@darthkitty I probably shouldn't tell you this, but yes tomorrows shot is going to be from the tower.

@huvesaker No it isn't warm at the moment it is winter here. Having said that though I believe the sea temperature is around 17 degrees which isn't too bad I suppose for winter.

@bristol_colin This is Newcastle New South Wales, Australia not Newcastle upon tyne UK. So I hope I haven't confused you.
Our Newcastle is about 160 km north of Sydney and about 60 km from where I love at Nelson Bay.

August 5th, 2014  
Great composition - looks an interesting place.

August 5th, 2014

August 5th, 2014  
Yes, it looks like a nice place.
August 5th, 2014  
Love your pov and dramatic clouds.
August 6th, 2014  
@pcoulson Thanks Peter. Actually the dark clouds fizzled out and it didn't rain the rain clouds were blowing the other way.
August 6th, 2014  
@bristol_colin ha ha. don't think you would pick it from my accent though, I come from Yorkshire originally and still have the accent even after all these years. I can say G'day though.

@dolphin Thank Molly. Newcastle is a very old city in Australian terms and so much history there.
August 6th, 2014  
@happypat Thanks Pat. The orange towers are navigational markers for the huge ships coming into port, but I don't think they are used much these days since GPS.
August 6th, 2014  
@gerry Thanks for the fav Gerry.
August 6th, 2014

August 6th, 2014
