Getting There and Around

Getting to Newcastle is easy and once you are here, there are plenty of transport options available to show you around.


August 2017 Update – Due to major light rail construction starting in September 2017, there will be a change to traffic conditions in Newcastle. This may cause delays and we encourage guests to take this into account when planning their trip. Hunter Street between Auckland and Darby streets will be close to all traffic while work is carried out. Detours will be in place. Find out more information here.

Directions – Follow the M1 and M2 to Cheltenham. Take the exit for Beecroft Road from the M2. Get on the M1 in Cowan from Pennant Hills Road/A28 and Pacific Highway/B83. Follow the M1 to Newcastle Link Road/A15 in Cameron Park. Continue on A15 and drive to Wharf Road in Newcastle. Crowne Plaza Newcastle is located on Wharf Road and Merewether Street.
