The Bogey Hole is a jewel in Newcastle’s coastline crown.
Named as one of the best swimming holes in the world we feel lucky to have such a spot in our own home town.
Built in 1819 by convict labour, the ocean pool was originally used as a private bathing space by Lieutenant Colonel James Thomas Morriset. Thankfully for us, it is now open to the public with safe access for an Instagram pic or quick dip.
The Bogey Hole is one of the coastal features detailed on the Bathers Way; a 6km self-guided walking trail that takes in the beaches of Newcastle and incorporates the Anzac Memorial Walk.
On a clear day this is a seriously sensational way to drink in the sights of Nobbys, Newcastle, Bar, Dixon and Merewether beaches.
After soaking up all that sunshine and those scenic delights you deserve a bite to eat and a tipple.
Bar Petite in Newcastle East can absolutely provide the perfect spot to imbibe. Nestled under the Novotel at the very eastern end of King Street this is a cosy and welcoming small bar.
They have fantastic weekday specials on their food menu, a long tapas list, and a very generous happy hour (Monday – Friday) which includes Audrey Wilkinson wines and $13 espresso martinis and margaritas.
