Reviews of Islington, NSW

1st April 2023

"A rough area"

The area is quite rough. I constantly came across much violence in the area. I would suggest to live elsewhere. People would get abused and sometimes on the streets there. I don’t recommend. You can’t even leave a review that is negative without being gaslighted by locals. If you like it, write your own seperate review. This is what I saw and experienced, you can’t change that.

"Vibrant inner-city community"

Islington is one of those charming places with a genuine cross section of community residing together. Absolutely love the proximity to everything, the cafes and restaurants, the creative atmosphere - think Newtown in Sydney 20 years ago! This suburb is one to watch.

Islington is a dump. Dont compare it to Sydney.

"Fab lifestyle options"

Islington is that old daggy quintessential drugs/prostitution suburb undergoing exciting gentrification. Moved here from SYD a year ago and it’s fabulous. Lifestyle options all within walking distance, a friendly and supportive community, heritage real estate with many undergoing refurbishment. We think it’s a suburb on the move and couldn’t be happier having chosen here. Think inner west SYD 10 years ago, and you’ll get the drift…

"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.
