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

The suburb of Rankin Park is only 11 kilometres from Newcastle’s CBD and is split between the City of Newcastle and the City of Lake Macquarie.

Rankin Park sits right next to New Lambton Heights behind the John Hunter Hospital. Its other closest neighbours are Cardiff Heights and Elermore Vale.

The area was formerly a housing estate named Cambridge Hills Estate and remains heavily residential-based, with very few commercial businesses in the area.
