After leaving the Hunter Valley we really wished that the weather would clear up, but no such luck! The weather got worse and worse. We decided to head back to the coast and check out Newcastle - just to see what it was all about. Bloody Hell. What a dump! Not good folks, not good. Maybe it was the rain, I dunno, but it just didn't happen for us! It was all a bit industrial and rough - complete with 2 or 3 oil tankers kicking around in the harbour for good measure.

"I didn't come all this bloody way for this! Let's get out of here!"
Hmm. We were there no more than 15 minutes, I assure you.
The Pacific Highway beckoned...
