A GUIDE TO HELP YOU IN YOUR SEARCH FOR A PLACE TO LIVE, OR INVEST, IN NEWCASTLE, LAKE MACQUARIE OR MAITLAND

Famous for its level crossing, Adamstown is the gatekeeper of inner Newcastle, but remarkably quiet and relaxed.

Adamstown is bordered by Merewether and Broadmeadow on the eastern side, while New Lambton and Kotara border the western side. A train line splits Adamstown and New Lambton, which is where Adamstown train station can be found. The suburb is approximately five kilometres from Newcastle CBD.

Adamstown was established in 1869. Affordable residential lots drew a lot of settlers to the area and by 1891 the population was over 2000. Later the rail line would bring even more people to the area. Adamstown is most well-known for the Adamstown gates, a level train crossing at the end of Glebe Road and the start of St James Road. Most locals accept getting stuck at the gates as a regular occurrence.

Why rent in Adamstown?

Stretching over 250 metres along Brunker Road are the Adamstown shops. From record stores to cake shops, Brunker Road offers most essentials. The Adamstown Lions Markets have existed for as long as many Adamstown locals can remember. The markets run on the corner of Glebe and Brunker roads every Sunday morning (weather permitting) and sell a variety of items including clothing, pot plants and bric-à-brac.

Adamstown marks the start of the Fernleigh Track. The track runs for about 15 kilometres along a disused railway line and finishes in Belmont. Frequented by runners, walkers and cyclists, cafés have popped up near the track in the Adamstown area to take advantage of this popularity.
