The Hill has it all, walk everywhere, great views, lovely heritage buildings, cafe culture and beach and harbour on your doorstep.
The Junction, it's close to everything, including a good public primary school, St Josephs primary school, and not far from Newcastle Grammer infants school. Still only a 5 or 10 minute drive to Adamstown. You are only 5 minutes from grocery store and market town shopping, 15 minutes to Westfield at Kotara but the best part is you are walking distance to restaurants, bars, cafes and even the beach, perfect for the whole family!!
Cooks Hill ....biased local I must admit
Anywhere but Jesmond, Birmingham Gardens, Shortland, Wallsend. Pretty much all the junkies and eshays wandering there.
Oh, it's not a part of Newcastle? Exactly my point!!
