Suburb Profile: New Lambton


Postcode: 2305 

LGA: Newcastle 

The people fortunate enough to call New Lambton home are a very patriotic bunch.  

If you ask them, they will very proudly list all the reasons why their suburb is one of the best in the region. 

Parks, shopping, a sports stadium, doctors, health practitioners, walking tracks, a nature reserve, and schools that are the envy of neighbouring postcodes. 

It also boasts 29 parks that cover almost 40% of its total land area. 

For Lisa Macklin Property director Lisa Macklin, New Lambton is more like a village than an address. 

“People move in and around New Lambton, but very rarely do they leave,” she says.   

After her husband had spent a lifetime in the suburb, this is where the pair chose to raise their own son, and ironically this is also where he resides with his own family. 

“New Lambton is such a family-friendly suburb, it honestly is a wonderful place to live.” 


MEDIAN RENTAL PRICE $630 per week

Suburb snapshot: 

New Lambton is a hive of activity most days, with the suburb’s 11,000 residents popping in and out of the main shopping precinct at various times of the day. 

From beauty, books, coffees, and groceries, to fish and chips, pubs and homewares, the postcode services the community both within and outside its 5.5km radius. 

The former coal mining township stretches from its 450-acre nature reserve on one side to its 30,000-capacity international sports centre on the other. 

It sits on the border of Newcastle and Lake Macquarie LGAs.
