  • Nobbys Headland

    Owned and managed by Port Authority of New South Wales, the heritage-listed Nobbys Headland is one of Newcastle's most iconic sites.

    Nobbys Headland has one of Newcastle’s best vantage points, with 360-degree views of the city, working harbour and Newcastle’s stunning coastline. 

    As well as being one of Newcastle’s most beloved locations, Nobbys Headland remains a key piece of operational infrastructure for the safe movement of ships through Newcastle Harbour. The site features an active signal station and a lighthouse owned and operated by the Australian Maritime Safety Authority that’s been in operation for over 150 years.

    Access to Nobbys Headland is open from 8:00am to 4:00pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
