Living In Central Newcastle

Flanked by the Pacific Ocean on one side and the Hunter River intertwining the city, living in Central Newcastle has become an increasingly popular option in recent years. The city was founded as a penal colony in 1804 and its rich history has evolved to give way to a bright and modern future. In fact, National Geographic mentioned Newcastle as one of the seven ‘Smart Cities” with the recent roll-out of Australia’s most progressive ‘Internet of Things” infrastructure.

The CBD’s café-culture, coupled with the hip bar and restaurant scene, rivals any other major metro city, only without the overcrowding or congestion. You will be spoilt for choice with the number of eateries on offer, most showcasing the fine local produce at your doorstep. 

What may surprise many moving to Newcastle, is the flourishing arts landscape that is evident in the Civic Theatre and the many galleries hosting impressive shows. This seems almost in contrast to the local’s love of sport, from rugby, cricket and netball to the plethora of water sports. There is no doubt that the stunning coastline and enticing beaches are part and parcel of life here. At any time, you can take advantage of the golden sands and salty air, without the need for a long commute or expensive parking.

The remaining Victorian terrace homes are testament to the city’s colourful past, however, contemporary apartments now dominate the horizon with views of either the river or sea. Apartment living is typical of the housing in the CBD, although there is something for everybody – from established families to single professionals.
