Summer is coming! It’s the perfect time to get out and about around Newcastle this summer for some free fun in the sunshine. Here’s our top tips for the best budget friendly ways to beat the heat around the Hunter region and Newcastle this summer.

Splash on in

  • If you have a pool at home – lucky you! You have the perfect spot to laze away those hot sunny days without splashing your cash away.
  • Add a bit of fun and magic to your dip with a few cheap pool toys.
  • Head to Kmart at Waratah, Glendale or Maitland to check out their range – who doesn’t want a unicorn or flamingo to float around in?
  • If you haven’t got a pool – Kmart can fix that for you!
  • You can get yourself a pool for less than $50, and have it set up and ready to dive in on in around 10 minutes.

Make it rain!

  • If a pool isn’t your thing, why not take a walk down memory lane to the good old days of the backyard sprinkler?
  • Grab yourself a sprinkler from Bunnings in Wallsend for less than $7.
  • Hook it up to the backyard hose and the whole family can have a blast running through the sprinkler shower.
  • Your lawn will thank you too!

Pop into the pool

Cool down and unwind indoors

Hit the beach

  • Let’s face it – there’s no better way to celebrate the gorgeous Newcastle summer sunshine than with a trip to the beach. And even better, it’s completely free!
  • Newcastle’s 6 beaches are patrolled, stretching from Stockton Beach in the north to Mereweather Beach in the south.
  • All of these beaches have parking, toilets and showers, picnic areas with shelters, and access for people with a disability.

Fill up the Esky

  • Keep your day out on budget by coming prepared with cheap snacks.
  • Fill your Esky with some cold drinks, fruit and snacks that you’ve pre-purchased at the supermarket.
  • This will prevent having to buy expensive food and drinks and save you a stack of precious cash.

And of course – stay sun safe

  • Don’t ruin your fun in the sun with a nasty case of sunburn.
  • Stock up on sunscreen and remember to Slip, Slop, Slap!

Follow these top tips to celebrate the sunshine, without overheating your budget in Newcastle this summer.
