"close to town and the freeway"

wallsend, which firstly started as a mining town/suburb. was initially the next major centre to the west of newcastle. it now spreads over a large distance and has many pockets, differing environments. many estates are now dotted throughout .
shopping is generally good with a choice of 3 stockland centres within 10 minutes drive, as well as the more modern and retail diverse westfield complexes which are within 20 minutes.
close to the newcastle university. callaghan college also has 3 combined campus in jesmond , wallsend, and waratah. whilst high schools are also located at glendale and cardiff. plenty of small primary schools are located within either walking or driving distance from any part of wallsend.
medical facilities are good with several clinics nearby as well as the wallsend hospital (now clinic) and newcastle and the hunter's major medical centre, the john hunter hospital less than 10 minutes away. several nursing homes are also nearby.
20-25 minutes drive to the beaches and city of newcastle,depending on what time of day.
wallsend is a good suburb with a vast range of ethnicity and range from singles/family/ to the retiree.
great sporting facilities with a plethora of parks and bushland also. greyhound racing track, swimming pool, gyms and major sport complexes/stadiums within 15 minutes drive.
