Nobbys to Newcastle Ocean Swim
With two days in succession of swims, you can make it a weekend of swimming in beautiful Newcastle -- for the city really is one of the most beautiful urban centres in Australia, the city with the beach in the CBD -- with Nobbys-Newcastle on Saturday, followed by the Australia Day Newcastle Harbour Swim on the Sunday, Australia Day. Make it your own Strã'a Day SwimFest! The new date -- the Australia Day weekend -- will apply for this swim for the next five years, switching between Saturday and Sunday only to avoid a conflct with Australia Day itself.
This really is one of the prettiest courses you will ever do, particularly if you can breathe to the right. It runs from the beach beneath Nobbys headland -- near where the Pasha Bulker was grounded -- around the rockshelf, past Newcastle Ocean Baths -- one of the great ocean pools on the 'Strã'an coast -- and into Newcastle beach. It passes the majestic residential district of Newcastle East, the famed surf spot, Cowrie Hole -- where Young Einstein surfed -- and into one of the only beaches that sits in a city's CBD. That's one of the aspects that makes Newcastle such a pretty city: the beach in the heart of the city. But then, we're biased. We're Novacastellian, ourselves.
