COOKS HILL / THE HILL At A Glance
A heartland for arts, culture and enviably good coffee, Cooks Hill offers a taste of Inner City buzz, whilst keeping hold of its local, working class roots. Once an industrial coal mining town, now one of Newcastle’s most desirable postcodes, Cooks Hill is a melting pot of cafés, culture, food and beaches, and all conveniently located just a kilometre south of the CBD. A stylish suburb that comes teeming with art galleries, beautiful parks and stunning streetscapes.
Darby Street is home to some of the city’s best eateries – you’ll find a bounty of backstreet local pubs, gorgeous restaurants and artsy cafés on this bustling strip – and chic independent boutiques (there are hundreds to choose from), but if nothing here takes your fancy, you’re just a short five-minute stroll from the beach and Newcastle’s busy CBD.
A leafy enclave decorated with beautiful Victorian architecture and plenty to see and do, Cooks Hill is one NSW suburb with serious credentials.
The gorgeous boutique shopping, stylish coffee hangouts and charming Victorian architecture.
Head to the Honeysuckle strip for dinner with harbourside views.
Cooks Hill’s Sea Pit hosted Newcastle’s most unusual banquet, 100 metres below sea in March 1906.
