Cooks Hill

The inner-city suburb of Cooks Hill is one of the most exciting precincts in Newcastle. With a lively bohemian vibe, its main street is home to trendy restaurants, cafes, cosy pubs, quirky homeware stores, second-hand bookshops, local art galleries and boutique stores.

Originally home to the city's first settlers, its leafy streets are lined with terrace houses and winding back alleys. It is now the city's artistic centre with many local photography and art galleries.

Newcastle City Hall


Opened in 1929, Newcastle City Hall is one of Newcastle's most unique and prestigious venues. Its old world charm and stunning architecture, including sandstone walls and pillars, marble staircases, clock tower and sweeping ballroom, is reminiscent of a bygone era.

Newcastle City Hall was originally designed to house Council administration and chambers. Although today Newcastle City Hall is used for a variety of social gatherings, its use as a council chamber and place of civic reception, and community gathering still remains. This includes ceremonial occasions, citizenship ceremonies, hosting of dignitaries and community forums.

The stunning concert hall, stage and upper gallery is frequently used by a wide range of community and commercial groups as a magnificent platform for staging a choir, orchestra, play or musical.
