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

Just a five-minute ferry ride across the harbour from Newcastle lies the beautiful peninsula of Stockton.

Originally named “Pirates Point” after escaped convicts were shipwrecked there in 1800, Stockton was an industrial and mining base throughout most of the 19th century. Workers and families flocked to the area throughout the 20th century, and in 1971 the Stockton Bridge opened, further reducing the suburb’s isolation from “mainland” Newcastle.

Stockton Beach stretches 33 kilometres up to Port Stephens. It features a surf lifesaving club, multiple shipwrecks and the largest mobile sand dunes in the Southern Hemisphere.

Why rent in Stockton?

With Newcastle just a few minutes away via ferry and 16km by road, Stockton’s coastal lifestyle and “country town” atmosphere appeals to retirees, families and CBD workers alike.

Stockton is home to cycleways, parks and picnic areas, as well as a skate ramp, swimming centre, tennis courts and sporting ovals. Mitchell Street is the main shopping strip, offering a small supermarket, bakery, cafe, bottle shop and specialty stores.

Stockton Public School and St Peter’s Primary School  provide Kindergarten to Year 6 education, while Stockton Early Learning Centre offers long day care and early childhood education for children aged 0–6 years. Most high school students attend Newcastle High, located across the harbour.
