Valentine

2280

Valentine is a large waterfront suburb in Lake Macquarie.

To the south-west of Newcastle, Valentine is bordered by Belmont, Mount Hutton and Eleebana. A large part of the suburb is taken up by a nature reserve but its lakeside lifestyle is the main drawcard of the area.

Although discovered in 1869, Valentine wasn’t named until 1916. Contrary to popular belief it was not named after St Valentine, but after the family who once owned the land. Coal was Valentine’s biggest resource and the area was mined until the 1950s. In 1958 the first school was opened and residential development started soon after.

“THE AREA HAS SEVERAL WALKING TRACKS, ITS MOST POPULAR BEING THE CENTENARY OF FEDERATION HERITAGE TRAIL.”

Why rent in

Part of the old coal mining site is now a thriving bushland park. Green Point Foreshore Reserve is a popular spot for a day out, with picnic tables and barbecues. The area has several walking tracks with its most popular being the Centenary of Federation Heritage Trail. The trail takes about an hour to walk and is flat, making it suitable for prams and children. The reserve is also home to many native flora and fauna. The halfway point of Belmont’s Parkrun is in Green Point Foreshore Reserve, marking the point where runners have to double back.

Valentine Public is the only school in the area and feeds into Warners Bay and Belmont high schools. The area has combined with its neighbouring suburb of Eleebana to form a variety of sports organisations including a football, netball and cricket club.

Much of the Valentine area is made up of family homes, with townhouses dotted about the suburb. Dilkera Avenue on the waterfront is the most sought-after street.
