Trackside Delights

Literally looking further afield? Then snap up a Sportsnet Holiday X Newcastle 500 Supercar championship package that includes 4 nights at the aptly Noah’s on The Beach. Yep this is Newcastle’s only beachfront hotel! Noah’s oh so conveniently overlooks the high-speed street circuit. Meaning you and your friends are totally sorted when it comes to experiencing the race exhilaration (acceleration?) firsthand. Get comfortable on your ocean view balcony with a direct view of turns 4, 5 & 6. The hotel is only minutes from the CBD too. Click here for more details on our 4 night package.

Tip – The Custom’s House Hotel is your go to zone for a quality meal – stakeout a spot on the historic balcony for sweeping harbour views or head to their excellent beer garden for a pint or three.

 

Newcastle – Coastal Highlights

With the Australian Summer just a week out from the event, she’s bound to be a warm weekend. Cool off at any of these refreshing seaside spots; Nobby’s Beach, Mereweather Ocean Baths or Newcastle’s main beach in the city centre. There’s a scenic 5km walk aka ‘Bather’s Way’ that stretches from the lighthouse at Nobby’s to the coastal wilderness of Glenrock Reserve that’s worth a look too. If you find extra time either side of the Newcastle 500 Supercar race, do take a short 16 click drive south to Redhead Beach, 9 miles of Pacific Ocean blue perfect for fishing and surfing.

 

Newcastle 500 Entertainment

The party vibe will be up, up, up come the Saturday night when Cold Chisel performs. Much to the delight and passionate acclaim of united supercar fans. Front man ‘Jimmy Barnes’ has a strong affinity with the Newcastle region having honed his live act pub rock skills throughout Cold Chisels formative years when the band often played the infamous Newcastle Worker’s Club. Add to that perennial Aus Rock fav’s Spiderbait and it’s bound to be a top show for all involved. Note; the ‘Coopers Roll Bar’ is an ace place to sink a cold one if you want to escape the mainstage for a bit.

The inaugural Coates Hire Newcastle 500 weekend is the final race of the 2017 Supercar championship. It’s a jam-packed event full of high performance racing and party action. There’ll be several support categories taking to the track when the supercars aren’t on show, so remember to keep an eye on the schedule for alternate racing action throughout the event. Secure your Newcastle 500 tickets and give our expert consultants a call and now. Come this November you and your mates will be having the time of your life at the Newcastle 500.
