Area Features

A taste of suburbia

Close enough to the city, but with a laid-back, friendly vibe, Hamilton is a haven for city dwellers hoping to sample a taste of the quiet life. 

A local vibe

Friendly locals make Hamilton a warm place to be. You’ll find most of them browsing the fashion boutiques, florists and local grocers on Beaumont Street – Hamilton’s main shopping strip – before stopping off for a quick bite and glass of wine in one of the chic cafés and restaurants, of which there are plenty to choose from. 


Hamilton’s grand federation homes rank among the city’s most impressive, but unlike busier, more densely populated areas, you’ll find most of the houses sitting on large, leafy blocks, which makes them popular among families. The surrounding leafy parklands are also a hotspot for kids and parents alike. 

Prestigious Schools

Families flock to Hamilton for the great school options. For primary, Hamilton South Public School and Hamilton Public are extremely sought-after, whilst nearby high schools include Newcastle, St Francis Xavier’s College, Hunter School of Performing Arts and Merewether. 

City to coast

Just 4km from the CBD and Newcastle Beach, Hamilton is a hotspot for commuters and beach lovers alike. Both are less than 15 minutes by car, so you can stock up on all the essentials before setting up camp on the sand. And all within a day’s (not-so-hard) work.
