The Watering Hole!

Do you know how many pubs used to be in Wallsend or the meaning of "six o’clock swill" and "time gentleman please"? Renata Daniel and special quest Ed Tonks, Historian and author of No Bar To Time will take you on a slow walk through Wallsend exploring past and present Pub and Hotel sites. Pubs were the centre of early communities of Newcastle and everything centred around "the watering hole".

  • Should you be unsure about the weather conditions for this tour please contact Renata on 0411357519

At WEA Hunter we offer a wide variety of Business, Lifestyle & Leisure courses at various locations throughout Newcastle and the Hunter Region.
Course enrolment must be accompanied by a fee; we are unable to hold places for people or accept deposits on Lifestyle courses. Once enrolment is completed students will receive a course confirmation either in writing or by email. This course confirmation constitutes a receipt.

Please check your confirmation letter to ensure you have the correct time, date and location of your course as well as any necessary requirements. There is a room directory located at each venue directing you to your classroom. Vending machines are located at both Laman & King street venues and parking fees will apply.

Please choose carefully as WEA Hunter does not issue refunds of fees paid except in circumstances where WEA Hunter cancels a course – in which case students are entitled to receive a full refund. Alternatively if a course cancels WEA Hunter will transfer the student into another course with no administration charge.
Please contact one of our friendly staff if you have any enquiries or need to make any changes to your enrolment. Please note any changes need to be made at least 5 days prior to course commencement.

It’s your time…enjoy it!
