There can be no denying that the Newcastle area is a gorgeous stretch of the New South Wales coast line. Cool, clean waters lap pretty beaches, and interesting coastal geography make for a fantastic place to expose photographs. Further improving Newcastle as a photographic location are the series of public baths that have been constructed along it’s rugged shores. These range from more conventional pool like structures to naturally formed pools that make ideal swimming holes. From Merewether to the Bogey Hole Newcastle’s Public Baths are well worth a visit for a refreshing and relaxing dip.
