MEREWETHER At A Glance
Once a quiet, working class mining village, now a hub of trendy beachside living, Merewether has quickly become one of the (if not the) most sought-after suburbs in the entire Hunter region, with young families, professionals and avid surfers flocking from near and far to get a slice of the sand-fuelled action. Famed not only for its pristine, surf-ready beaches, Merewether’s varied landscapes boast everything from serene green parklands and secluded beaches to lush rainforests with trickling waterfalls, and all within 5km of Newcastle’s buzzing CBD.
Streets are scattered with a mix of quaint old miner’s cottages and chic contemporary abodes – many of which come with enviable views of the ocean – whilst most of the local boutiques, bars and restaurants can be found at The Junction and Glebe Road quarter, in Merewether’s north.
A surfer’s paradise with great schools, beautiful beaches, stunning landscapes and convenient access to Newcastle’s CBD, Merewether’s chic suburbia is one to watch for anyone venturing outside the city, be it Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane or Newcastle.
