The Location

The Practices are based in the coastal city of Newcastle in the state of New South Wales, 2 hours north of Sydney. It is Australia’s second oldest city after Sydney but is a lot more suited towards family living and not as expensive.

It has a population of half a million with everything from beaches, to street art, iconic ocean swimming pools and trendy bars and cafes.

The big attractions are its beautiful sandy surf beaches and Harbour with its laid back vibe and the chance to partake in aquatic sports including jet-skiing, sailing, surfing and diving amidst the stunning natural surroundings

Newcastle is also the gateway to the Hunter wine region and the area has a beautiful national park to explore.

In addition to the coastal living afforded by its close proximity to beautiful beaches and the wine regions of the Hunter, working in Newcastle also offers a choice of a metropolitan lifestyle but without the traffic, hustle or bustle normally associated with Sydney. And yet it remains close enough to offer easy access to Sydney for those post-work entertainment nights-out at iconic venues like the Sydney Opera House and a swift return home.
