    I like to take people to my favourite coffee shops, cinema on Sunday night if they want and community events.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Newcastle offers many activities - Famous for great surf beaches 15 minutes from Tighes Hill by bus/bicycle. Old city that was mainly known as an industrial city is reinventing itself with great bars and restaurants popping up everywhere. Historic buildings, flourishing art scene, shipping harbour ( unfortunately loaded up with coal), interesting day trips to beautiful Port Stephens and Hunter Valley Wineries. My house is in Tighes Hill which is an interesting suburb also reinvented since the closure of BHP steelworks..., filled with interesting people, has a community garden, coffee shop and regular bus service available to City centre or supermarkets. Islington park, Throsby creek/mangrove walking and bike tracks form one side of the suburb while a rail corridor forms the other side.
