Rooms with a view for the 2018 Newcastle 500: accommodation with views over the track.

Are you making the trek to Newcastle this November for the 2018 Newcastle 500? If so, finding centrally located accommodation will be high on your priority list for the weekend.

With road closures, scant parking and packed public transport expected, finding accommodation close to the action will save you headaches, put you closer to the action and make your weekend one to remember (for all the right reasons!)

Now, you can’t get much closer to the action than a room with a view – accommodation overlooking the track itself. You might think it will be impossible to find such a gem, however Newcastle Hunter Tourism & Accommodation Centre (NHTAC) has multiple accommodation options scattered along the Newcastle 500 circuit.

Whether you want to position yourself along the Watt St straight, take in views of the beach on Shortland Esplanade or find a spot on one of the many treacherous turns, make sure you contact NHTAC first to secure your room with a view.

Check out these 6 properties as an example of the quality accommodation NHTAC offers.
