Postcode: 2289  

LGA: Newcastle 

It’s currently home to an array of shops, cafes, food outlets, a pub, velodrome, ovals, and health and beauty services, with Adamstown’s Brunker Road expected to become its own mini precinct within the next few years. 

Recently rezoned to allow further housing and development, the popular Brunker Road strip boasts neighbouring landmarks that would be the envy of many CBDs. 

Adamstown sits ideally between Newcastle Racecourse, Westfield Kotara, Glenrock, New Lambton, Hamilton and Merewether, with prices still accessible says PRD Adamstown director and licensee Kylie French. 


“Adamstown is a suburb that continues to grow,” she says. 

“There’s currently $186.3 million worth of new projects due to commence construction in Adamstown this year, with projects expected to stimulate economic growth and create plenty of local job opportunities.  

“When we were looking at where to set up the business, and we could choose anywhere, Adamstown just made sense, it really is central to everything.” 

A golf club redevelopment, a new seniors’ living facility, as well as new townhouses, units and dwellings are expected to bring an extra buzz to the suburb that sits just 6km from the Newcastle CBD. 

“The main commercial project in the first half of 2024 is the Merewether Golf Club,” says Kylie. 

“The Merewether is a $76.9 million project and will include the construction of a 6-storey seniors living development to comprise 148 serviced self-care dwellings, wellness centre, and associated facilities.”
