Our house is in a nice quiet part of inner Newcastle that has plenty of street parking and is close to public transport. Our house has a modern fit out with an open living-kitchen plan and we even have a bathtub. Yeah, that's right.
There are bike paths leading from our suburb along Newcastle Harbour, Foreshore, Nobbys Beach and the other connecting beaches. There are a few nice cafes nearby or you can take the trek/skate/ride/drive to the cafes an restaurants of Beaumont St, Hamilton.
