Tree-lined streets, beautiful homes, highly regarded schools and a choice of reserves and parks has made New Lambton popular with families.
It enjoys a central position in the city of Newcastle within 10 minutes’ drive of the CBD and some of the best beaches on offer.
Prices of homes in the area have been steadily rising and, according to Australian Property Monitors data, the median sale price rose from $470,000 in 2013 to $700,000 last year.
McDonald Jones Stadium, home to the Newcastle Knights and Jets, is positioned at the north-eastern corner of the suburb. Just five minutes away is Westfield Kotara shopping centre. New Lambton also features shopping villages in Regent Street and Orchardtown Road.
Nearly one-third of the suburb is taken up by Blackbutt Reserve, a 182-hectare nature reserve with peaceful walking trails, playgrounds and a wildlife sanctuary.
