From Sydney / M1 (northbound only): Take the Wallsend exit from the M1 (that’s the exit before the Newcastle exit).

From the M1 (southbound only) or M15: Take the Newcastle exit from the M1, or proceed straight ahead for Newcastle from the M15.  In both cases, you need to be in the RIGHT-most lane, so that you can turn right at the major intersection with Cameron Park Drive / Woodford Street (traffic lights).
