It’s not your typical Visitors Information Centre. Housed in the old Civic Train station it has been lovingly designed for a new era, with 100% local souvenirs to take memories away, it’s a great spot to pop into.\n\n• **Newcastle Museum** - with free entry this is a no brainer.

Personally I think it’s a great representation of what Newy was and what Newy is becoming.\n\nTake note of:\n\n- Old Civic Train Station, now the Visitors Information Centre\n\n- Old storage facilities repurposed as venues like the Newcastle Museum, gyms and other businesses\n\n- Civic Theatre - a perfect representation of Art Deco and modelled off Sydney’s iconic State Theatre\n\n- NUspace - the city campus of The University of Newcastle.\n\n- Kingsley by Crystalbrook Collection - Newcastle’s first 5-star hotel which was repurposed from the City of Newcastle’s old build, an example of brutalist style architecture."},{"type":"img","content":"https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/freeguides-prod.appspot.com/o/assets%2Ftours%2FbIrHT96RGPYTMiQjagcN%2Fstop_5_4.png?alt=media&token=fae2ca14-57a3-41d0-bd6a-62a4f3a178be","metadata":{"height":748,"width":748},"version":1},{"type":"text","content":"**Hot Tip**\nGet up close and personal to one of Newcastle’s many photo walls for a free souvenir to make your IG profile shine."},{"content":"https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/freeguides-prod.appspot.com/o/assets%2Ftours%2FbIrHT96RGPYTMiQjagcN%2Fstop_5_7.m4a?alt=media&token=d8952725-1a33-43bc-b44e-92a2b630fb75","type":"audio"}]},{"address":"Newcastle Cruising Yacht Club, Hannell Street, Wickham NSW, Australia","media":[{"type":"img","metadata":{"width":748,"height":748},"version":1,"content":"https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/freeguides-prod.appspot.com/o/assets%2Ftours%2FbIrHT96RGPYTMiQjagcN%2Fstop_6_0.png?alt=media&token=6f1557de-c896-474f-b1ef-aeeb874059cb"},{"content":"#Newcastle Cruising Yacht Club\n\nNow is the perfect opportunity to stop, take a break and re-hydrate.\n\nThe is a BYKKO station near the Newcastle Cruising Yacht Club located on the cycleway.
