"Fast growing inner suburb"

Islington is one of Newcastle’s growing inner suburbs, the property is ideal for both investors and first home buyers. Its location is key, being just a 2-minute walk to Beaumont Street, a less than 10 minute drive to the University at Callaghan and less than 5km to the city and nearest beaches.

Looking to invest? Rental returns can vary from property to property. I am happy to provide a rental estimate for any property you may be considering purchasing. Please do not hesitate to give me a call.

"Not recommended"

I had moved out of Sydney and moved to Islington as I got work in the Newcastle area. I lived in Islington for two years. Being a Sydney sider, I had no idea about it being a red light district until local friends told me and a simple google search. The locals in the Islington area are in denial about the prostitution problem in the area and the problem in the area sadly still exists. I would constantly come across them whenever I did my daily exercise or just a simple walk to the Aldi nearby. I couldn’t even use the bus stop in Islington and had to go all the way to Hamilton to catch the bus. I don’t understand why the locals think so highly of this area - either they are completely clueless or in denial. I ended up moving back to Sydney and getting a job there as this suburb completely turned me off Newcastle. I wouldn’t recommend anyone to live here.

hr5 I read about prosecution and drugs used in the area. Is it really bad? Is there a rampant use of drugs there? Planning on finding a place there with my kids. Thanks
