SUBURB SNAPSHOT

Enjoying a central position bordered by Merewether, Broadmeadow, Kotara and New Lambton, Adamstown is a suburb which has gained in popularity in recent years.

As people have become priced out of sought-after coastal suburbs Merewether and Merewether Heights, they have started looking to Adamstown and realising all of the benefits it offers.

Around 6000 people live in Adamstown and it has a median house price of $695,000.

LIFESTYLE

It has access to many services with a shopping village located on Brunker Road as well as close proximity to Westfield Kotara shopping centre.

It is also offers easy access to the Fernleigh Track, which extends over approximately 15.5 kilometres between Adamstown to Belmont.

In its formative years the suburb, like most of the early settlements in Newcastle, revolved around coalmining but was isolated from other suburbs by thick bushland

These days, it is a quick car or bike ride to the inner city, beautiful beaches and the harbour. It also has easy access to public transport and Brunker Road is targeted for an urban renewal. 

It has several parks, including Adamstown Oval where some of the region’s most talented footballers have honed their skills.

FROM THE EXPERT

Adamstown is a current hot spot for families with access to great schools, shops and close proximity to the city of Newcastle.

It is close to the Fernleigh track and Glenrock while Westfield and the Home Makers Centre are on your door step.

It has quiet streets with plenty of parks and house blocks are generally a generous size. Further growth is expected as surrounding suburbs become less affordable.
