This place is an excellent place to take your family to enjoy the beach in Newcastle, it's well patrolled, excellent swimming areas and the surfers seem to like the place. You can walk form the surf house end right up to the lighthouse. Great place

Nobbys Beach is an iconic part of Newcastle. Its a beach you can swim at, walk along or just sit on a seat and enjoy the view. The cafe at Nobbys serves ice creams, drinks and take away food.

Lovely beach and impressive beach protection walk. Note that the light house is not accessible to the public and the walk is quite long, especially under the hot summer sun. But worth doing!

Like all the beaches along Newcastle coast, Nobbys is neat tidy and picturesque. Serviced by well maintained bike track, adgacent to café and kiosk facilities all in friendly atmosphere. Parking was not a premium during prime time on weekend and very accessible to beaches.
