Welcome to Newcastle, NSW

The Band Association of NSW and the National Band Council of Australia are looking forward to welcoming you to the City of Newcastle, NSW for the Australian National Band Championships which will be held from Friday 2 April to Monday 5 April 2021.

Newcastle is one of Australia’s oldest and most interesting cities with a blend of new and old architecture, a rich indigenous history, and one of the busiest ports in the world. The land and waters of Newcastle are acknowledged as the country of the Awabakal and Worimi peoples, whose culture is celebrated in community events, place naming, signage and artworks.

To learn more about Newcastle’s history, take a walk through Newcastle Museum, or visit historic Fort Scratchley overlooking the mouth of the Hunter River estuary. Explore Christ Church Cathedral and its exquisite architecture, beautiful grounds and sweeping views of Newcastle Harbour.
