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.
