Honeysuckle is a vibrant waterfront playground where the harbour meets the city. There aren't too many places in the world where you can sit back, relax
and take in the incredible views of a working coal port; Newcastle is one of them.
You can watch a giant coal ship being towed into port by a team of tugboats, followed shortly after by a fleet of fishing boats heading out for an evening's haul. The Cruising Yacht Club marina is located further upriver, so it's common to see a fleet of yacht's heading out to sea while in the distance a group of backpackers learn to stand up paddle board.
All of this on harbour activity can make one thirsty and this is where Honeysuckle comes into its own. With a strip of restaurants, hotels, bars and cafes lining the waterfront punters are spoilt for choice. You can choose to go upmarket with an array of a-la-carte restaurants and bars or go casual with pub meals and craft beers and ciders on tap. Or simply drop into the local ice cream parlour for custom made desserts.
Honeysuckle offers accommodation right on the harbour with the Crown Plaza taking pole position while the Chifley Apartments and Honeysuckle Executive Apartments expanding the options within walking distance of this exciting wine and dine strip.
What you may not know is that Honeysuckle is also a corporate business hub with high-rise office accommodation for over 2500 employees, provides residential accommodation for 2200 people and provides 13 hectares of quality public open space where people can play.
