A guide to help you in your search for a place to live, or invest, in Newcastle, Lake Macquarie or Maitland

Lambton offers something for everyone and is a particular favourite among those who enjoy an outdoor lifestyle.

Bordered by New Lambton, North Lambton and Elermore Vale, Lambton is located eight kilometres north-west of the Newcastle CBD.

Lambton began life as a coal mining township but has also played a part in the Hunter’s sporting and entertainment history. Lambton Park hosted the first organised soccer match between workers from competing mines and Newcastle’s oldest rugby league club was formed in a pub on Elder Street.

Until the 1980s, Lambton’s King’s Theatre was one of Newcastle’s most popular cinemas. Now called Lizotte’s, it operates as a theatre restaurant and plays host to performances from local, national and international musicians.

Why rent in Lambton?

Known as Lambton’s high street, the Elder Street shops provide everything that locals need: independent supermarkets, fruit shops, butchers, cafes and even a few boutique accessory stores.

Lambton Park is one of Lambton’s biggest drawcards. Centrally located on Elder Street, the park is a popular recreation space that includes tennis courts, soccer fields, a bowling club, children’s playground and a 19th century bandstand. There is also a public swimming pool complex featuring an Olympic-size swimming pool, diving boards and a large water slide.

Lambton has three schools. Lambton Public School and St John’s Primary School are at the centre of the suburb, while Lambton High School sits on the eastern border.

Lambton is popular among families thanks to the many family-sized detached homes in the area. However, because it is a short drive to the university and the centre of Newcastle, it also attracts students and professionals who take advantage of the small units on offer.
