Newcastle’s impressive little suburb, Adamstown, generally flies under the radar – and that’s the way locals like it. Backing onto the infamous suburb of Merewether in Newcastle’s east, Adamstown’s central location places it in prime position to take advantage of the city’s best features without the crowds.
Situated at the suburb’s southern end, Adamstown Heights is also positioned to benefit from the suburb’s proximity to Merewether Beach and the stunning landscape of Glenrock State Conservation Area.
Adamstown’s main drag, centred around the Glebe and Brunker Road intersection, has a variety of shops and everyday amenities within a short walking distance from anywhere in the suburb. For those who love a window-shop, Westfield Kotara is handily nestled between Adamstown and Adamstown Heights.
Housing in Adamstown consists of a balanced mix of charismatic federation cottages and modern terrace and freestanding homes within residential estates. The neighbourhood layout works to bring the community together around commercial areas and parklands, providing a safe, family-oriented environment.
Private and public schooling options close-by make the area a popular choice for families with young children, with frequent buses and train services running from Adamstown station ensuring that commutes to the Newcastle CBD or Sydney an easy task.
The Adamstown Lions Markets held every Sunday offer a unique range of bric-a-brac, fresh produce, arts and crafts, baked goods and artisan stalls. Do as the locals do and grab a coffee, pick up some pastries from the markets and head for a picnic on the grass at Adamstown park for an idyllic Sunday morning.
