We spent 24 hrs in Newcastle for the official opening of a veranda in our bro-in-laws bar, opened by Kevin Rudd (prime minister) look-a-like (who is also bro-in-laws uncle and is really funny).

Stayed in Travelodge as it was handy but stupidly didn't book it on their own website and got charged extra than the others for no breakfast and twin beds! Stupid wotif.com.

But Newcastle has it all and was even on the Channel 9 travel show 'Getaway' see http://getaway.ninemsn.com.au/article.aspx?id=393373 (the pub The Kent in the clip is bro-in-laws bar).

I hadn't been there for 3 years, in fact to the day as the Hamilton Festival was on then too or maybe that was another time, anyway, it was great to have brunch on funky Darby St. and check out the great clothes shops esp. the new expensive one called "High Tea was Mrs. Woo" where I bought a gorgeous merino wool jumper (why?) and to swing by Bar Beach again.
