Below we’ve compiled some information that will help shed some light on some of the questions we are often asked by people looking to move to Newcastle:

Living Options

  • Combined beach and city lifestyle

There are various areas within close proximity to both the beach as well as the CBD (and the cafes of the famous Darby Street). These include Newcastle, Newcastle East, The Hill, The Junction, Bar Beach and Merewether. The Honeysuckle development district is a popular and contemporary location favoured by many professionals and an easy 20-minute walk to the centre. 

  • Living close to the university

For those who prefer to be close to the Callaghan campus, areas such as Jesmond, Birmingham Gardens, Lambton, Wallsend and Waratah are ideal amongst others. Suburbs with good public transport to the city and university include Adamstown, Mayfield, Kotara, Georgetown and Broadmeadow. 

  • Lakeside or greater Hunter living

Living in Lake Macquarie is another consideration with its efficient bus service to Charlestown and Warners Bay. Living in Port Stephens and the Hunter Valley also offers quieter options, whilst still having easy access to the CBD for work.
