Coates Hire Newcastle 500

When: Every November.

The Coates Hire Newcastle 500 ignites the roads of Newcastle each November - we hope you're ready!

This race has cemented its place as one of the most anticipated events on the sporting calendar with grandstands, pit lane walks and the Saturday concert featuring well-known artists (free with any same-day event ticket).

Kids 12 and under receive free Trackside admission with a paying adult.

Travel to the event:

  • 40 minutes drive from Karuah to Stockton
  • 15 minute ferry to the Newcastle foreshore (running every 5-15 minutes during the event)
  • 5 minute walk from Queens Wharf to Gate 1 along the waterfront to the pedestrian bridge at Wharf Road.

There is so much on offer on the last weekend in November, we can't possibly tell you everything, so pop onto the Supercars website to find out what's on and grab your tickets.

This event is guaranteed fun for the whole family but why let the fun stop there?! BIG4 Karuah Jetty has all sorts of accommodation available ranging from self contained cabins to camping sites.

Book early so you don't miss out!
