Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Stockton is a friendly beach side suburb on a peninsula ideal for swimming, surfing, cycling and fishing. Newcastle is just a ferry ride away with all the amenities of a city but without the hassles of parking. The climate is great all year round with Spring and Autumn being my favourites. The beaches in Newcastle are stunning and only a short walk from the ferry terminal. Nearby are the Stockton sand dunes where enthusiasts use 4 wheel drives or quad bikes to explore the beach side and sand hills. Nelson Bay is less than an hour away and is accessible by bus as well as car. It is famous for its dolphins and whale watching in season. The Hunter Valley is an hours drive away and features numerous wineries and quality restaurants and is sometimes referred to as Sydney's playground. It is a must for any visitor to the region. Sydney can be accessed by car and by train. The train journey is less than 3 hours but gives visitors quick access to the many sites that Sydney is famous for.
