I found by accident a rather nice if still incomplete story on ABC Newcastle on Hunter Valley walks, especially around Newcastle. I must try some of them on my next visit.
At a dinner party in Sydney recently I was arguing to friends that Newcastle must now be one of the most civilised places to live in Australia. I was pleased to find that a number agreed with me. Even with those who did not, I think that I have actually encouraged some to visit.
