Just two hours from Sydney and rapidly becoming a sophisticated, cosmopolitan centre in its own right, Newcastle holds rich and attractive opportunities for any investor.
It wasn’t always this way. For a long time Newcastle was one of the roughest places in NSW. It was a coal port full of sailors, miners and a city based on steel and industry. Then, the recession of the early 90s hit the city hard, as did the closure of the BHP steelworks, the largest employer in the area. Few would have predicted that Newcastle would turn around to becoming the second most populated city in NSW with an exodus of Sydneysiders flocking to it each year.
