Living in Newcastle

Newcastle offers all of the usual city advantages, such as restaurants, cafes, parks and gardens, theatres, art galleries, shopping centers and nightclubs. Less than one hour's drive to the north is the impressive harbor of Port Stephens, a popular center for big game fishing, sailing, surfing and sailboarding. The University of Newcastle at Callaghan boasts one of the best campuses in Australia. Its 300 acres of natural bushland - complete with Australian wildlife - at the city's edge offer you peace and quiet; the perfect prerequisites for successful study. Central to student life on campus is the University Union, which boasts more than 20,000 members. The Union organizes many of the University's important social and cultural events.
