Hamilton, NSW

Suburb Profile

Overview

A three-minute drive from Newcastle’s CBD and a 10-minute drive to the golden sands of Merewether Beach, the suburb is perfect for those who want all the conveniences of city living but crave a nearby escape from the bustle.

Hamilton attracts young families and independent students, drawn to the area’s thriving café scene and central location. Beaumont Street, running the length of the suburb is flush with restaurants and retail options while the lively Broadmeadow Racecourse occupies much of Hamilton South, providing locals with animated racing days over 24 Saturdays each year.

Once a working class neighbourhood - primarily due to nearby coal mines and steelworks - the area has since experienced gentrification. Late federation style homes fill the suburb and Wickham Park, Gregson Park and the Darling Street Oval provide the area with relaxing green spaces.

Brunch lovers are spoiled for choice in Hamilton, with Apothecary Kitchen and The Depot on Beaumont just two of a slew along buzzing Beaumont Street. The same goes for Hamilton’s active pub scene with the institution that is The Exchange Hotel, offering $10 lunches and outrageous burgers – it’s always a favourite for famished uni students.
