Newcastle Mini Guide

What can you Tell me About Newcastle?
The city began as a stop on the Durban to Johannesburg train route before being marked out as a town. It gained in importance during the Boer War when it took on the role of a supply base to the British Army. Today the region around the city is important for coal production and there’s a big steelworks too helping to make the city prosperous. However, many of the city’s inhabitants still live in townships outside the city proper.

How do I get to Newcastle?
The nearest major airport to Newcastle is in Swaziland, at Sikhuphe, around two hours’ drive from Newcastle. There is an airport in Newcastle but it is only for general aviation and private charter flights. Most travellers to the area will have to make firm plans for their onward travel and car hire from Sikhuphe is usually the preferred option.
 
What Should I do in Newcastle?
Geographically, Newcastle is partly surrounded by the upper reaches of the Drakensberg Mountains with the beautiful scenery and great sports and leisure opportunities they offer. It’s possible to ski on the upper reaches of the mountains or bike or hike the many trails. If you like shopping then the newly completed Newcastle Mall will help relieve you of your rand. Costing over 500m rand, the shopping centre has dozens of local and international chain shops as well as restaurants and entertainment.
