Newcastle Sight & Fort Scratchley


Newcastle is steeped in heritage and culture, historic architecture, a thriving arts scene and a community proud of its past. Enjoy a driving tour around the city to see The Lock Up, Customs House, the Convict Lumber Yard, Fort Scratchley Historic Site, Newcastle Museum, Newcastle Ocean Baths and Beach, Christ Church Cathedral, and several historic convict-era buildings. At Fort Scratchley, take a guided tour operated by the Fort Scratchley Historical Society, around the Barracks, underground tunnels and the above ground defence structures. Learn about the Fort’s involvement in World War II, and its place in the history books. It was the first and only Australian Fort to return fire on an enemy ship during a time of war. Free time at the Newcastle Museum allows you to wander the exhibits at your leisure.
