Mountain View is a totally local track. meaning its never crowded. You can skip the loop and head straight to the lookout which takes legit 5 minutes, or you can extend the walk via the hole in the fence along Nepean St and explore the neighbourhood of Waterside.
Officially the Great River Walk, some call this track the bridge to bridge but for us that grew up round these ways, well… it will always be the River Run.
The Newcastle Vegan market is a great opportunity for anyone experimenting with meat free alternatives as well as any foodie in general.
