Best time to visit?

Hi

Planning a surprise trip for my better half who has not seen her family in Newcastle, NSW for years. When is the best time to visit? Any times of the year I should avoid?

    WHat a wonderful surprise.
    I would say that the best time for you to come here would be our southern summer time, your winter....miss out on some of the UK cold:)
    So anywhere from November to March.
    You could come over and do an Aussie Christmas with the family and enjoy our beaches and BBQ's:)

    Personally, I'm at odds with Anne. I'm an autumn, winter (try 20 degrees in the middle of the day) and spring fan. Summer's a bit too hot for me but, if you want a swim then I have to agree that's the best time for it.
    She won't recognize the CBD around the wharf area, so much has changed. It's now a people town rather than an industrial one.
    Whatever time you come, enjoy.
    Cheers.
