Newcastle City

Suburb Profile

Overview

With the Pacific Ocean on one side and Hunter River on the other, Newcastle is a port city that’s been nurtured by a community that knows how to put in the hard yards. Although it has deep roots in the coal, steel and timber industries, Newcastle has redefined itself as a thriving cultural centre and a beachside community that has Sydneysiders heading north for a more affordable sea-change.

Rich in history, Newcastle has undergone an urban renewal evidenced by streetscapes that retain elements of the past whilst embracing the new. Newcastle’s dining, bar and arts scene has erupted in recent times and caters to an expanding community of professionals and entrepreneurs.

Newcastle reflects Australia’s love affair with sports. Rugby, soccer, cricket, horse racing, basketball – you name it, Newcastle has a team for it – but it’s the surrounding water that dictates the city’s strong preference for water sports.

The beaches that hug the Newcastle region’s coastline have an enduring surf culture. In Newcastle East, Nobby’s Beach, which extends out to the iconic Nobby’s Lighthouse, is a sanctuary for families and kite surfers, whilst Newcastle Beach, the hot surfing spot, draws the crowds with its Art Deco pavilion and ocean baths.

Situated two hours north of Sydney, Newcastle is drawing more people, some of whom still commute to Sydney for work. The majority prefer to lay down permanent roots.
