Wickham

The inner Newcastle suburb of Wickham lies just 3km from the city centre between the rail line linking the city with Sydney and the busy Throsby Creek extension of Port Hunter - part one of Australia"s busiest harbours and the largest export harbour in the Commonwealth by tonnage.

Wickham itself is a proudly multicultural and egalitarian place of intensive housing and some great pubs and places to eat, right at the heart of this bustling and historic city.

The tough city of Newcastle, on the sea at the mouth of the Hunter River, 156km north of Sydney, has shown its true colours by reinventing itself as a major tourist destination after the closure of the local BHP steelworks and mighty earthquakes devastated the city - both physically and emotionally.

But Newcastle"s natural assets - which include beautiful beaches and its proximity to both the delightful Lake Macquarie and the vineyards and thoroughbred paddocks of the Hunter Valley - give this wonderful city much to build upon.

With a population of more than 250,000 people, Newcastle is the second-largest city in New South Wales and the sixth largest in Australia.

Miss Porters House


Miss Hazel Porter lived all her life at 434 King Street, Newcastle until her death in 1997 aged 83. Not wishing her home to be redeveloped, she bequeathed the property, its contents and endowment to the National Trust. The freestanding Edwardian terrace built by her father, Herbert Porter in 1909 has been little changed over the years. Entrusted to the care of the National Trust, it survives as a poignant insight into the homes of an era, and the quiet and careful lives of the Porter family.

The Porter sisters steadfastly retained their personal possessions and the Trust has been intrigued by the collection of clothing, fabrics, craft materials, linen and general household items that remain in the cupboards and sideboards. Miss Porter's House is a living home, offering you today, a rare and privileged visit into other lives and other times.

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.

Light Up Newcastle


The Newcastle Rotary Clubs invite you to join in a special event to celebrate Chinese New Year and Light up Newcastle with red lanterns in February 2016.

The challenge set for this year is to "be a gift to the world" and the Rotary Clubs will provide a gift to seafarers visiting the Port of Newcastle and celebrating the maritime heritage of the City.

The Mission provides sailers with a 'home away from home' at the Seafarers Centre in Wickham. The lantern walk will raise money for a new upgrade to their kitchen.

Newcastle's Maritime Centre will also be a beneficiary of the event. Money raised will assist them to build a new entrance to its public cafe on the foreshore.

Newcastle City Council and Hunter Development Corporation have supported the event and it will be part of the Summer Tourism Campaign.
