Full summary

Newcastle suburb Hamilton is just a short walk from the CBD. It’s one of Newcastle’s key lifestyle suburbs, with a wide range of restaurants, bars and shops along Beaumont Street. It is also linked by rail to the rest of the city by the Newcastle-Maitland line, and the Pacific Highway leading north and south is easily accessible by a short drive.

The median house price for the suburb is expensive compared to some of the outer suburbs of Newcastle, but very favourable when compared to the CBD and premium suburbs like Cooks Hill.

PRDnationwide analyst Oded Etzioni reckons that increased business investment in Newcastle is the key to the suburb’s future performance.

“Business investment in Newcastle and surroundings is attracting more people to the area,” says Etzioni. “Demand for accommodation close to the CBD is reflected in the performance of both house and unit product. Still affordable when compared to similar locations in larger metropolitan areas, the suburb of Hamilton offers peaceful living with close proximity to employment, transport and parks.”
