Surfing in Newcastle, Australia
About 2 hours north of Sydney lies Newcastle, Australia. This town looks like it is transitioning from a declining working class town to more of a hip surf town and that it's mid-way through that transition. The beaches here are small and a bit scraggly compared to other areas, but the surf is great!
