Hi Degrassi! Didn't see your post - still working out my way around.
Yes I have heard a few things about Newcastle - would love to know more about it!
Are the areas around the Newcastle area expensive or reasonable for the average family income would you say ?
I love having my kids and I outside as often as possible and find that we can't do that as much in Melbourne as other areas around Australia... I like the laid back life style and Melbourne is a great city but not laid back really.. is Newcastle a bit more laid back would you say ?
