Newcastle Guide

Found in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, New Castle sits inland from the popular coast and remains an important centre of industry and agriculture for the entire region. With car hire in New Castle visitors can freely travel from the inland region to the coast without wasting time on public transportation.

New Castle is located on the national highway, N11. It connects north from Ladysmith and proceeds through New Castle to Ermelo in the north. A mile north of the city centre, Route 34 cuts east to the coast. This is the fastest way to get to Durban and the other coastal communities of KwaZulu-Natal.

New Castle is an important stopover between the KwaZulu-Natal coast and Kruger National Park. Tourists are likely to spend time in both of those regions, making cheap car hire in New Castle an important consideration. It's even possible to drive directly to Johannesburg (3 hours, 30 minutes) along the N3.

Touring the region by car rental in New Castle is the best way to enjoy the South African landscape, ranging from stunning stretches of coastline to quintessential African savannahs with lions, giraffes and elephants. This is an ideal launching pad for mobile tourists who plan on dividing time between beach life and the safari experience.

Newcastle railway station is in the city centre and connects to Johannesburg, Kruger National Park as well as the resorts on the coast. The station is across from Lyell Street southwest of New Castle golf course.
