Arrive at Newcastle Airport Australia and hit the beach in minutes…

Newcastle Airport is an easy 25 minute drive from the beautiful beaches of Port Stephens, on the east coast of New South Wales in Australia.

Fly direct into Newcastle Airport with Jetstar, QantasLink, Regional Express or Virgin Australia and you can spend more time at your destination; not travelling to it.

We’re ideally located to access, within an hour’s drive, amazing beaches in Newcastle; world-class wineries in the Hunter Valley; a world-heritage listed rainforest, Barrington Tops; Australia’s largest salt water lake, Lake Macquarie; and some of the world’s most famous horse studs in the Upper Hunter. And, award-winning conference and function venues.

No matter what brings you to Newcastle Airport there is something in our region, easily accessible from the airport, for everyone.

Newcastle Airport is fast becoming the region’s airport of choice for flying both domestically and internationally. International travel is easy from Newcastle Airport with direct flights to Melbourne, Brisbane, and the Gold Coast where you can easily connect worldwide.

Starting your trip at a domestic airport and hubbing through an international airport can often offer cheaper flights, cheaper parking, and can save you the stress and hassle often encountered in making your way on the road to a capital city airport.
