Native Newcastle: a tour, by Brooke Tunbridge by Brooke Tunbridge

I was lucky enough to join one of Native Newcastle’s see and do tours around the town last week, visiting the iconic landmarks and hidden treasures Newcastle offers. Ran by Dan and Heidi, long time locals, Native Newcastle combine their passion for travelling and their love of Newcastle, into creating small tours to their favourite spots around town. The tours are personal and the itinerary is created to suit the group, unlike the structured big tourist bus tours. You’re able to be shown around by locals, to spots that they themselves frequent.

PLACES WE LOVE: The Cambridge Hotel by Kian West


Cambridge 3Some think of the Cambridge Hotel, The Cambo, as the heart and soul of the city. The venue that plays host to every band they want to see and the space in which so many beautiful memories. For others The Cambo has lost its way over the past few years (maybe a decade) but it has turned the corner! Installing the always delicious Newy Burger Co. a burger joint that plays off Novocastrians sense of pride with perfectly named burgers that are super duper tasty. Plus The Cambo has bringing the music back with a gigantic list of touring artists walking through the doors over the coming months and seems set to #BringIt with a fantastic New Years Eve lineup!

Why We Love it: They are doing it! They are bringing the pride back to The Cambo and more importantly the music back to the city! We know that there are a heap of cool venues putting on local heroes and we love them too, but Newcastle needs an alternative, rock, metal, indie band venue for the masses, a space for hip-hop, rap and electronic to happen for larger groups (but not festival sized). Plus #burgers
