Although it is only five minutes from Newcastle by ferry, Stockton has a unique character and an intriguing history which is far removed from the nearby bustling steel city. Stockton's glorious long beach which stretches 33 km to the north - all the way to Port Stephens - makes this "northern suburb" of Newcastle a superb hideaway for holidaymakers. It is a fisherman's paradise with the Hunter River, Stockton Beach, Newcastle Harbour and deep sea fishing all being ideal fishing grounds. In many ways Stockton is a sleepy, old fashioned seaside town with a mix of 19th century cottages and elegant newer houses. The main street and shopping centre are unpretentious. The beach cafe is classy and the open parklands are ideal for relaxation and picnics. It is a hidden gem.

Things to See and Do
Cycling around Stockton
It is hard to imagine a better place to cycle by the sea than Stockton. There are numerous designated cycleways, the area is beautifully flat, and the changing scenery from the Breakwater to views across to Newcastle's CBD to pleasant journeys along the banks of the Hunter River is ideal for everyone from the committed cyclist to family holidays.

The Shipwreck Walk and Stockton's Maritime History
Stockton is a maritime suburb. The Shipwreck Walk runs along the foreshore in both directions from the ferry terminal. Heading up river it reaches the Ballast Ground where sailing ships deposited their ballast before loading up at the port. Towards Stockton Beach it heads towards Pirate Point and out on the Shipwreck Walk Breakwater where the hulks of visible wrecks have been incorporated into the structure. Across the water it is easy to identify Nobbys Head and the lighthouse.

Birdwatching at Stockton
Located north of Stockton Bridge, this is possibly the best area in New South Wales to view large numbers of migratory wading birds. It is part of Kooragang Nature Reserve, a designated "Ramsar" site for its significance for migratory wading birds. Kooragang Wetland Rehabilitation Project and the New South Wales National Parks and Wildlife Service manage the site. Some 34 species of migratory waders flock to the Hunter estuary in their hundreds and thousands between October and April.

Hi, BnBCare is a small family run local business, that manages properties on Airbnb. The Newcastle, Hunter Valley and surrounding areas are growing and thriving but still have a regional flavour. We've seen the region change and grow during our lifetime however it is still easy to get around - as we always say, there are about 6 different routes you can take to travel from one part to another. We love using the backstreets though because it is here that you can find a treasure. We hope you enjoy the local areas as much as we do.
