  • Australia's Oldest Port

    Newcastle is 162km north of Sydney and is the economic and trade centre for the Hunter region. Our harbour provides a significant gateway to the resource rich Hunter Valley and for much of the north and northwest of NSW.

    Newcastle Harbour is Australia's oldest export port and one of the country’s largest tonnage throughput ports. Coal exports represent more than 90% of total tonnage, which includes other bulk cargoes such as grains, vegetable oils, alumina, fertiliser and ore concentrates.
