Consider a Dark Stories True Crime Walking tour if you’re looking for cool things to do in Newcastle or one of the more unique things to do in Newcastle for teens. This 90 minute tour will take you around the city while telling you stories about famous crimes that unfolded right where you stand.
We took the tour on a cold, windy night and found learning about the city’s more sinister side fascinating. While we didn’t have any children with us, there was a group of young girls on the tour to celebrate one of their 10th birthdays, and while I think some things went over their heads, they seemed to enjoy exploring the cemetery at night.
I’d recommend the Dark Stories True Crime Walking Tour as one of the fun things to do in Newcastle at night for families with older teenage kids.
The Newcastle True Crime Tour runs from 7:30pm on Friday, Saturday and Sundays, with extra sessions scheduled during school holidays.
And not too far down the road you can also enjoy the Maitland True Crime Tour which runs on Friday and Saturdays (scheduled for 5pm & 7:30pm timeslots). Maitland is one of Australia's oldest cities and has some unbelievable True Crime stories from the past - plus a glorious High St to enjoy.
Hope to see you there!
