Why did you choose Newcastle? Was it just a random pick? We are in merewether but living in a mining town during the week. We get back some Sundays though for the Newcastle farmers markets that I just love.

Hi. I do not live in Newcastle but was almost posted there so did a fair bit research, including a trip over. I really recommend you take a trip over and check it out prior to movin, if feasible - just in case you get there and suddenly think 'oh dear, this wasn't the sea change I was imagining'. No matter what everyone told me about Newcastle i really needed to see it in person first to make sense of the areas and what areas I would be happy to live in.
Best of luck.

I think the air smells just like air... no different in scent to the air I use to breath in Brisbane. The air quality might be poorer due to coal dust though.

There used to be a smell and quite bad smog from BHP but they have gone now and the air is clean. There is certainly a smell on kooragang island from the pool fibreglassing but no one lives there anyway.

We are currently renting a flat in one of the suburbs mentioned by PP where there are a lot of restaurants etc. We love living here, but it is expensive ($400 p/w for a 2 bed flat with a shared concrete 'backyard'). There is lots of 'wildlife' always walking past our place from the huge DOH area a couple of kms from here, and they have broken into my car a couple of times, but other than that we don't have a lot of trouble. I lived in cardiff for quite a while and it was great in terms of public transport, walking distance to good supermarkets etc. I think maryville/tighes hill/islington is a LOT better than it ever was before, it's actually a very affluent area these days, and those suburbs are great inner city living! Will come back if I can think of anything else

I really think you should look into Lambton or Wallsend for your pets and kids as well as rent affordability for a decent place. My ex did his teaching placement this semester at Wallsend South Primary and he thought it was a great little school. I'm not far from Lambton Public which is also quite nice. A mate's girlfriend has just finished at Kotara High which is apparently quite good and she enjoyed it there. I think rent at Kotara is reasonable as well and you have the Westfield and homemaker there for shopping and whatnot. It's not hard to catch a bus to Hamilton or Darby St for the cafés and hipster-ness.
