The Bather’s Way connects the five main beaches of Newcastle and more than five hundred people every hour uses it. Here are some of the activities you can do within the area:

Go swimming

Swimming is also another practical activity to do. There are a lot of secret swimming spots as well as ocean baths within the area. There is also the well-known Bogey Hole, a secluded swimming spot which is considered as the earliest recorded purpose-built ocean in the world. It was hand-hewn in 1819. Because of that, not only is Bogey Hole a mere swimming spot but an important part of Newcastle’s history.

Go surfing

If you want to take things at a more extreme level, you should definitely consider surfing. Take note that Bathers Way is where most of Newcastle’s surfing talents were bred. It is okay if you do not know how to surf. Surfing lessons are being held there. A lot of tourists are able to catch their first wave right at Bathers Way. So whenever you are in the area, do not forget to ‘surf up!’

Go exercising

The Bathers Way is also a popular destination among those who love to work out in the open. People from all sorts of ages usually work their bodies out early in the morning and late in the afternoon. Run or jog along the sandy beaches. Do some stretching exercises. Do some breathing exercises. Go shadow boxing. These are just some suggestions for you!


Whale-watching is also one of the activities you can do at Newcastle that you cannot do at just any place in the world. In the months of May through August, there are thousands of whales heading north so that they can breed there. And in the months of October and November, these whales will migrate to the Antarctic. It is always relaxing to stay at Bathers Way and spot whales playing in the surf.
