    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.

    Also Newcastle apparently has a 'smell' about it because as soon as anyone found out I wasn't from there they would ask if I noticed the smell?? I didn't really - maybe this is a Newcastle in-joke I don't get. Interesting little tidbit for you.
    Best of luck.
    Really? I've never heard of or noticed this apparent smell.
    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.

    Me either. That's really strange. I've been here 14 years now and have never heard of that.

    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.
