The Location
Newcastle is Australia’s 6th largest city and is just 162km north of Sydney. There are daily flights, but it is only a 2 hour drive on the major Freeway. It has also been recently voted by ‘Lonely Planet’ as amongst the 10 best cities to visit in the world.

There are plenty of shopping complexes, several museums as well as an art gallery, which are worth visiting and many other things to do. Nearby there are also a number of nature reserves which are very beautiful offering bushwalking and the chance to see a variety of wildlife. Stockton Beach runs along the coast to Port Stephens and is backed by the wonderful and beautiful sand dunes.

Newcastle has a lively entertainment scene and plenty of good restaurants. Good transport links to Sydney, an airport and good educational facilities make Newcastle a very good option to live, work and play in.

Newcastle is the heart of the Hunter Valley, a popular wine district of Australia. It has a borderline oceanic/humid subtropical climate like much of central and northern New South Wales. Summers tend to be warm and winters are generally mild.

The Newcastle/Hunter region has over 300 schools from infants and primary to secondary schools. There is a mix of private (religious and independent), public, selective and specialist (performing arts, intellectual and sports schools
