It could be described as the region’s best-kept secret, with the people of Dudley rarely having a need to share their treasure. 

This is such a tightly held suburb that even those who sell their homes here often stay within the postcode. 

“Cool”, “coastal” and “quiet” are often terms used to describe the Lake Macquarie suburb perched high above the ocean’s edge. 

Surrounded by Awabakal Nature Reserve, filled with walking trails and a beach that is ranked in the top 10 in the country, it’s hard to imagine this address was once home to little more than mining families. 

“Dudley is such a beautiful area,” says Lisa Macklin Property real estate agent Steph Jordan. 

“It feels like you’re on holiday when you’re here. There’s such a lovely community vibe. I can see why people fall in love with the place and want to own a piece of Dudley. 

“It feels like you’re away from the stresses of city life here, and yet you’re less than 15km from the Newcastle CBD.”

Visitors to Dudley usually come with outdoor activities in mind, be it swimming, surfing, fishing, bushwalking or picnicking. 

The picturesque coastal town is surrounded by natural beauty, with the Pacific Ocean to the east and Glenrock State Conservation Area to the west.  

“It has its own vibe,” Steph says.  

“There are so many hidden gems here, and I think that’s just how the locals like it.”
