Home to a highly successful rugby league and AFL franchise, sports fans flock to Newcastle regularly to catch a dose of the action. Easily accessed by a train from Sydney's Central Station, Newcastle is a mere two to three hour journey through the delightful countryside. Beautiful beaches await (are you sensing a theme here?), as do mountainous horizons and lush forests. Giggle at local Nobby's Beach and Bogey Hole, or be a bit more mature and take in the sites at the impressive historic monument of Fort Scratchey - Newy has something for everyone.
While not as widely known abroad, Newcastle is actually Australia's seventh largest city, and therefore boasts developed infrastructure, exceptional local bars and eateries, and - you guessed it - a variety of casual employment options. Wealthier families in the area hire nannies and au pairs on a regular basis, which offers travellers the chance to not only earn but also see a different side of Australia. Living with an Aussie family will mean you get more exposure to Australian culture, food - so all the good stuff.
