Newcastle is a vibrant port city at the gateway to the Hunter Valley.

Cruise Hunter, a division of the Port of Newcastle, helps with every facet of a cruise ship visit - from pre-planning, port and shore operations, to tourism liaison. Passengers can also look forward to a friendly wave from locals along the Newcastle Foreshore during cruise ship visits.

Services provided by Cruise Hunter include:

  • Festive welcome celebration.
  • Visitor Information Booth at berth.
  • Friendly meet and greet and volunteer service at berth and at popular inner city locations.
  • Experienced tour guides.
  • On-site taxi co-ordinator.
  • Inner city shuttle service from wharf to retail, eating and beach precincts.
  • The port's existing infrastructure and facilities are ideal for cruise ships. Visiting cruise ships generally berth at the Channel Berth, Carrington - a short distance from the city centre with efficient transport connections.
