PREFLIGHT MUNCHIES: A guide to eating local at Newcastle Airport

They say there’s no place like home and if your home is the Hunter you can be forgiven for wanting to savour the local favour before spending some time away.

Thanks to Newcastle Airport’s commitment to local producers, departing passengers can now enjoy some of the best the Hunter Valley has to offer.

So, here’s a guide to enjoying local before you take off on your next big adventure from Newcastle airport.


All retailers and food outlets at Newcastle Airport now stock 100 per cent Hunter Valley wines. You can expect to find drops from renowned brands like Audrey Wilkinson, Margan Wines, Peter Drayton Wines, and Tyrrell’s. You can also enjoy a cold glass from the range of beers brewed just up the road from the airport at Murray’s Brewery Co. Our tip is to grab a Farmers Steak Sandwich, Nobbys Beach Burger or a gourmet cheese board at the bar to match your beverage of choice.


Catch breakfast made from locally sourced produce at the airport!  Head to Hunter & King Coffee Co for a quick café meal before you board your flight or relish a plate of smashed avo toast using premium Snows Artisan bread at Epicure Kitchen… Accompanied by a barista made coffee of course.


Looking for a quick bite before your flight? Well, you’re in luck, Broughton & Bay at Newcastle Airport offer a selection of snacks and they have beer! We recommend a Whale Ale, locally produced by Murray’s Brewery Co.


Who could blame you? The Hunter Valley produces some of the most amazing produce in Australia. Pick up some Hunter Valley Cookies, Pukara Estate oils, or Simply Stirred chutneys as a gift.

So now you’re equipped with all the information you need to make the most of your next departure from Newcastle Airport.
