    Places to Visit on Holiday in Nelson Bay, Australia

Another popular tourist attraction to visit during your holidays in Nelson Bay is the lighthouse known as The Nelson Head Light, which dates from the late-nineteenth century. You will only be around 60 km away from the large city of Newcastle and this journey can be taken by rail, if you do not have access to your own car.
