Newcastle may not be as big as Sydney or Melbourne but as you move from one suburb to the next there are unique characteristics to each area.
With many people focused on the area and the lifestyle it will provide, more and more people are choosing to rent in their desired location instead of buying elsewhere.
Below, we explore a few key suburbs in Newcastle and the different lifestyles that come with each.
