Where to stay in Charlestown

About Charlestown

Located around ten kilometres to the south-west of Newcastle’s CBD, the suburb of Charlestown lies within the Lake Macquarie city in New South Wales. It serves as the main transport hub for the region, in addition to a significant business and shopping centre.

The suburb radiates from Charlestown Square which is the largest shopping centre in the Lake Macquarie region, home to a variety of big-name department and chain stores, as well as a supermarket, banks and cafes. There are four primary schools located within its bounds, together with a police station, fire station and the NSW Ambulance Service’s Northern Communications Centre. On the eastern edge of the suburb is the start of the Yuelarbah walking track which winds through the magnificent coastal rainforest and waterfalls of the Glenrock State Conservation Area. The Leggy Point loop walk also takes in this protected area and boasts beautiful views across the Pacific Ocean coastline from the elevated vantage of Elvis Rock. To the south-east are the picturesque beaches of Redhead and Blacksmiths, while Australia’s oldest wine growing region in the Hunter Valley is just a short drive north-west.

Charlestown is well connected to Newcastle by frequent public bus services, with numerous stops outside Charlestown Square and throughout the suburb. The Yuelarbah walking track is accessed from a car parking area off Burwood Road in the east of the suburb, with a couple of bus stops within a short walk from its starting point.

The Waratah Coal Company was the first to develop industry in the region that is now Charlestown, establishing a shaft in 1873 that was known as Raspberry Gully, the Gully Pit or Charles’ Pit after the company’s manager, Charles Smith. The suburb that was created in its surrounds was eventually named after him, with its first residential housing lot auctioned in 1876.
