"Great Family Suburb"

An older middle class suburb of Newcastle offers close promity to the City and Beautiful Lake Macquarie. Only 10 minutes to the beach and Lake. Excellent public and independent schools nearby. Very leafy tree lined street. Blackbutt reserve and several excellent parks. Walking distance to 2 village shopping strips and bordering a blue-ribbon part of New Lambton. Mostly very good, friendly neighbours. Mostly 1930-40's weatherboard homes on smallish blocks. Like some suburbs of Newcastle there is some inconsistency of housing quality from house to house and some nearby streets are somewhat "scrappy" but overall an excellent place to raise a family with nearby amenties of a high standard, bush, parks, some restaurants and cafes. Would recommend to anyone seeking an older, more quaint suburb with character in which to raise a family. As most blocks are small and there are very few units it really isn't suitable for young people looking to rent and party.
