Fort Scratchley was a former coastal defence installation and is now a museum. It was built in 1882 to defend the city against a possible Russian attack
This is history at its best. Come look at tunnels dug to protect us from the Japanese many years ago when their submarines were firing on out land. It’s a great place. And when cruise ship come in the cannons get fired.
Built in 1882 to defend Newcastle against a possible attack. Now a museum and a popular venue for weddings & private functions. Stunning views.
This is the site of an old fort originally built in the early 1800s and is the only fort in Australia to have fired its guns at the Japanese during WWII. It's a nice historical spot that kids will love but there is also a great view of the harbour and city from the lawns.

“Secret spot to go for a swim in Newcastle. Awesome view with the ocean bath being cut into the rocks. I don't recommend taking little kids to swim but still worth a stroll to take in the view.”
