The city of Newcastle has a population of about 300000 residents, making it the second most populous city in the State of New South Wales after Sydney. The city’s history and economy are inextricably linked to coal mining. It started as an outlet for coal in 1801 and today about 97 million tonnes of coal are exported annually through its ports, making the city an economic powerhouse and Australia’s gateway to international prosperity. Tourist attractions in the city include museums such as Newcastle Museum, parks and natural reserves (e.g. Blackbutt Reserve, Foreshore Park), pristine beaches (e.g. Nobby’s Beach and Dudley Beach), historic sites like Fort Scratchley and the city’s many cultural festivals.
