Morpeth

"Just go!! This place is sooooo charming!!!!"

I visited Morpeth on a day trip while I was holidaying in Nelson bay (about 70 km away) and I’m glad I did!
You could be walking down the street 100 years ago time has just stood still in this old world village.
The shops where amazing old toy stores, lolly stores, wine store, antique store bakery etc... the history oozes from the old sandstone buildings even the gutters in the streets are sandstone!

Famous businesses also started out in Morpeth as it was a thriving trade centre in the early and mid 1800’s most notably Soul Patterson Chemists and Arnott’s biscuits.
We went on a horse drawn cart ride through the main streets in town with a lovely German settler named Dieter who stoped and told us of the rich history behind each significant building and landmark.
“Juliet” the 11 year old Clydesdale horse presented an image of yesteryear roaming the streets and the sound of her enormous hoofs pounding the pavement added to the atmosphere and experience.
As a tourist attraction i give this place 10 out of 10!! JUST GO!!

Gloucester Road

"Nice wide street in the middle of town"

Gloucester Street Hurstville is a VERY long Street that stretches from Forest road, which is in the middle of Hurstville C.B.D, to Stoney creek road Which is considered to be Beverly Hills.
Gloucester street is a centrally located street depending on which end of the street were talking about, but by far and away the more desirable of the two would be the half located closest to Forest road.
Gloucester Street also suffers a little by traffic, the street is a popular “Through fair” for motorists travelling between Hurstville and areas including and surrounding Bevery Hills .

Woids Avenue

"You can walk to everything in Woids Avenue!"

Woids Avenue Hurstville is a wonderful neighbourhood in which to live.
Provides close convenience to Westfield shopping, train station and schools.
The street has a high concentration of apartments with other dwellings including houses situated at the end of this very long street
You can pretty much walk to everything that Hurstville has to offer from Woids Avenue and it provides for a safe and secure investment as the street is always highly regarded amongst the buying public due to its central locale.

Empress St

"Really nice street"

Empress street Hurstville is probably the most favoured street in Hurstville amongst locals who want modest living arrangements in this thriving metropolis.
With a mixture of apartments , townhouses, villas, and smaller homes empress street is located oh so close to Hurstville Train station and Westfield shopping.
At the end of this Cul-De-Sac you will find “Empress Reserve” a leafy park often filled with young family’s and children playing on equipment provided by the local council.

Sanoni Avenue

"Super Street"

Sanoni Ave, is a street located in a select pocket of exclusive Sandringham.
The eastern end of Sanoni ave leads to the Cook Park waterfront and Peter Depena Reserve, which is a most popular picnic ground by the beach that people from all over Sydney come and enjoy on weekends.
The western end of Sanoni Ave is home to comfortable modest family living, most homes that line this end of the street are single storey dwellings and are rarely offered for sale.

St George Sailing club is also located at the end of Sanoni Ave, perched high it captures spectacular views over the bay and provides for probably the cheapest dining experience in Sydney that combines unlimited tranquil water views.

A most unique locale combining ample open spaces, water, and peace and quiet yet only a 15 min drive to Sydney International airport....... What more can i say? , come and expierience it for yourself.

Scarborough Street

"Fall in love with Scarborough Street"

Positioned perfectly and close to everything, Scarborough Street Monterey is unquestionably one of the best streets in the area, the minute you enter the street you are overcome by serine feelings created by the blue water back drop of lady Robinsons beach. Great homes line the wide friendly neighbourhood.
You will need over a million dollars to live in this street and even that will only get you a smallish block with a very modest home, most nice homes in this street are closer to 2 Million.

Monterey

"Welcome to amazing Monterey"

Monterey is located approx 15km from Sydney C.B.D, Monterey sits on the western shores of Botany Bay. Lady Robinson Beach and Cook Park run along the eastern border. Scarborough Park, which features a pond, runs along the western border. The suburb is mostly residential with a small group of shops on Chuter Avenue, near the intersection of Scarborough Street.
Monterey is an exclusive and very tightly held suburb on the peninsular and provides many of the facilities that near by Brighton-Le-Sands embodies, but in a much quieter atmosphere.
Monterey is such a clean “Green and Blue” suburb with ample parklands and beach’s, there are many million dollar+ mansions in the privileged streets that run off the “Grand Parade” such as Burlington, Hollywood, Pasadena, Culver and other streets.
2009 has seen for enormous capital growth gains in this suburb, where a modest 3 Bedroom older style dwelling on an average block is always expected to sell for around a million dollars, expect to pay around $800,000 for a 2 Bedroom semi home.

Ramsgate

"Blue water wonderland"

Ramsgate is a very colorful suburb, in spring the local council plants beautiful flowers up and down the main strip which highlights the blue water back drop.
Housing is very affordable for a beachside suburb and locals enjoy the cafe lifestyle that Ramsgate shopping village provides, as you drive down Ramsgate road the suburb is a hype of activity with locals and visitors enjoying the park, beach and shopping facilities all central in this quaint family orientated suburb.
I have sold many property’s in Ramsgate in my time, including units, villas, homes and even vacant land, 2009 has been a good year for Ramsgate with substantial gains in property values witnessed as opposed to previous years.
If you are looking for an affordable sea change Ramsgate could be the area for you!

Newcastle

"The CBD of the North coast"

I visited Newcastle on a day trip when I was holidaying at near by Nelson Bay 2010.
I did not enjoy the experience to say the least, with-in 2 min of exiting my car I was asked for a smoke and change.
The people did not seem too friendly and I would describe the area as dirty, for me it was undesirable.
There was a great beach along the coast and some nice cafes opposite the atmosphere in town was a stark contrast.
There where many shops boarded up and vacant probably a sign of the times ,I think Newcastle was probably hit hard by the recession.
It took me at least 30 minutes and a lot of walking to find somewhere I considered “decent” to eat and ended up eating at Oporto takeaway because I was hard pressed to find a cafe or nice eatery.
This was my personal experience and I see by other reviews that others rate the town highly, I’m sure it has a lot to offer after all I was only there for approx 2 hours (wanted to leave a.s.a.p) but I expected a thriving metropolis and was bitterly disappointed, smaller country towns surrounding Newcastle would be better visited in my opinion.

This review describes the Newcastle and to the west of there areas very honestly and exact from an outsiders unbiased oppinion. It is not uncommon to find the culture of the areas to be unfriendly, rude, a little arrogant, narrow minded as they don't like change and certainly a culture of aggressiveness. The town to me is better described as a oversized country town rather than a city, especially due to the locals country mentallity. Newcastle does have nice beaches but as described above, alot of the area has alot of bordered up shops etc but this has been like this for 20 -30 years - they are attempting to revamp the area and change the appearance of the town but won't change the culture of the people!! Definately can say coastal and lakside towns north and south are a better options and more affordable when you do the proper researchs and do the comparisons.

Unbiased opinion!?! The reviewer "expected a thriving metropolis" and was disappointed. Of course he was disappointed, because Newcastle is not a "thriving metropolis" and doesn't try to be. This review is ridiculous and I would take it with a grain of salt since the reviewer has only been to Newcastle for 2 hours and has such unrealistic expectations. These reviews are supposed to be from LOCAL VOICES ie. people who have lived in the area or at least know it well - as a guide for people who may want to live there.
In my experience (as a local!!) the people in Newcastle are lovely, down to earth and less stuck up and aggressive than Sydney siders. I know this very well since I previously lived in Sydney for most of my life in a whole variety of Sydney suburbs.

Most Sydney siders call a spade a spade, they will say how expensive it is for being a CAPITAL CITY, or how suburbs have gone bad. People tend to compare the prices in the affluent areas of Sydney which are through the roof but don't compare average areas where properties are more affordable.

@ Realityone - Sydney is not the 'CAPITAL CITY" of Australia - Canberra is. Get your facts straight before you criticise.

Realityone

Referring to the capital cities of each state actually: Perth capital city of WA, Adelaide capital city of SA, Melbourne capital city of Victoria, Hobart capital city of TAS, Canberra capital city, Brisbane capital city of QLD, Sydney capital city of NSW. This site is where people can have their voice on their experiences of where they have lived and everyone has different oppinions as do alot of other areas have different oppinions expressed without conflict.

Donald Street

"Top street in the middle of town"

Donald Street is a lovely street perched high and looking over the town of Nelson Bay and the d'Albora marina.
There are a mixture of apartments and homes in the street with many of the apartments enjoying water views out across the bay, it’s also a 2 minute walk to the shops and everything that Nelson Bay has to offer.
Highly recommended!
