Newcastle Harbour is one of NSW's great recreational riding areas. On the south side where the fancy hotels and the shops are located is very bike friendly. You can ride to Nobby's Lighthouse to the east and to Tighes Hill to the west and then loop around Throsby Creek and come back to the main centre. This is an enjoyable one and a half hours of easy riding with fantastic photo opportunities, about 14 km in total.
Once you have conquered that, grab a ferry (opal card or purchase ticket on ferry) and head to Stockton on the North Side of the harbour. Here you have the choice of an easy ride to the end of Shipwreck Walk (which you can ride on) to the east or a really good and safe ride all the way to Stockton Bridge and back, a distance of 12 km.
You can hire bikes easily on the south side of the harbour on Wharf Rd. This includes standard bikes and BYKKO, Australia'first eBike share scheme.
