Situated between Newcastle West and The Hill, Cooks Hill offers a buzzing inner city atmosphere that locals and visitors adore.
Within minutes walk of Newcastle CBD, the Victorian terrace housing and timber cottages lining the streets make the area popular with young professionals and families keen to make the most of the central location.
A few blocks back from the beach and with several parks dotted throughout the suburb, you’re always close to a bit of fresh air and greenery.
Cooks Hill’s main artery of Darby Street, running the length of the suburb, is the city’s cultural centre. With over 100 boutique stores, countless cafés and restaurants lining the street, the shopping precinct is a must for those keen to explore Newcastle…or spend an afternoon indulging in retail therapy.
The Civic Precinct just to the suburb’s north boasts the Newcastle Art Gallery, the Civic Theatre and Playhouse, Civic Park and Newcastle City Hall. The monthly Olive Tree Markets is held in Civic Park with over 150 stalls stocking gorgeous artisan products. Adjacent to Civic is Honeysuckle, a strip teeming with restaurants, bars and pubs overlooking Newcastle’s Harbour Port and provides the area with a boisterous nightlife come Friday.
