Local Insights: Cameron Park & Surrounds

Cameron Park and its surrounding suburbs have become a haven for young families looking to establish themselves in their first or second home, whether it be a new build or established within the last 10 – 20 years.

Many are looking towards these areas either because they want larger homes on decent sized blocks, or because they are commuting to Sydney or even the Hunter Valley mines for work and prefer to live on the outskirts of Newcastle. Cameron Park also has its own shopping centre, as well as the Pasterfield Sports Complex with an oval, playground, netball courts, skate park and fitness equipment. Schooling options are in nearby Edgeworth and West Wallsend.

Nearby areas like Barnsley, Holmesville and West Wallsend offer a semi-rural lifestyle, with large blocks of land and plenty of space for growing families.
