For surfers, the map shows the most powerful swell tracking across near-shore open water and not the peak waves experienced by boats out at sea.

Newcastle Surf Breaks

Newcastle provides a plethora of waves to satisfy any level of surfer. Right and left point breaks, beach breaks a plenty, reef breaks and a few other gems on hand. Early March to late October are the best months for consistent swell. With the standard east coast slop during the summer months. One of the better ways to view the city of Newcastle is from the water. With the constant backdrop of a cue of coal tankers the majestic cliff faces along the headlands dominate the scenery. The mainly south facing beaches are separated by headlands that divide the coast and provide various reef and sand set-ups. While the crowds can be overwhelming the range of waves means there is always a less crowded wave if you are willing to have a look around ..... Adam Arnold

Region with many many options if you are willing to drive 30 mins in either direction. Mostly beach breaks with and points. The occasional rocky reef break too. Best time is late autumn to spring for consistent swell and preferable wind conditions. Newcastle itself is city beaches but just a short drive North or South and you can find quite costal beaches with great scenery. Right near Stockton beach and its sand dunes which would have to be one of the longest beaches in New South Wales ..... Matt Egan
