Hi I'm Becky, let me show you the best of Newcastle! I'm a photographer and tour guide with a background in design and psychology. I've lived all over the world, but fell the hardest for Newcastle. I run a business helping visitors & locals uncover the secrets of this amazing and often underrated city. Why Newcastle? The stunning city by the beach, interesting history, the coffee, small bars, art galleries, surfers walking barefoot through the CBD... but most of all, community.
