The Junction

Suburb Profile


The seaside suburb of The Junction is a relaxed little enclave just a short drive from the centre of town. Situated at the bottom of Darby Street, The Junction shares borders with Cooks Hill and Merewether, with bustling Glebe Road running through.

Renowned for its beachside hospitality, venues dotting The Junction’s main artery offer the perfect place for a Sunday morning brunch following a swim at nearby Merewether Ocean Baths or Bar Beach. The spectacular Newcastle Memorial Walk from The Hill, through The Junction and on to Merewether is a coastal track providing 360° views of Newcastle’s stunning natural beauty and a poignant tribute to the ANZAC’s.

Having just completed a major renovation, Junction Fair shopping centre is a flourishing hub with designer labels, homewares and gourmet food stores, while Westfield Kotara is only a 15-minute drive away for any major shopping expeditions. Paying a visit to the Snows Artisan Bakers on Union Street will quickly become a daily ritual; with countless pastries, tarts and loaves on offer.

Attracting a young demographic and independent professionals, The Junction, nearby Darby Street, Civic and sandy beaches make for the perfect blend of urban coastal living.
