Wallsend

2287

Wallsend is an extremely large suburb 11 kilometres north-west of Newcastle’s CBD.

Wallsend sits south of Maryland and Shortland and north of Elermore Vale. Birmingham Gardens separates Wallsend from the University of Newcastle and Minmi is to its south.

Newcastle-Wallsend Coal Company’s first coal mine opened in 1860 and as a result the towns of Wallsend and Plattsburg grew rapidly. Commercial buildings and shops were built to service the needs of the influx of miners. In the 1860s, following a period of drawn-out arguments with management, a group of disgruntled miners began the co-operative mine on the present site of Wallsend High School. The mine ceased production in 1934.

The 1989 earthquake resulted in the demolition of many century-old buildings; however, Wallsend still retains the ambience of its “coal mining village” years.

Why rent in

Wallsend has good road access and is close to the M1 Pacific Motorway, allowing an easy commute to the Hunter Valley or south to the Central Coast and Sydney.

Stockland Wallsend, in the centre of the suburb, services the majority of the area’s shopping needs. There are also many cafes and restaurants within Wallsend.

Wallsend boasts three parks, including one off-leash dog park. Wallsend Brickworks Park in the eastern side of the suburb combines history, nature and fun. Wallsend Brickworks operated for over 80 years, with only a few remnants of the operation remaining, including parts of a brick-making machine and chimney. The park has a large picnic and barbecue area as well as several nature trails.

Wallsend has four schools, including three primary schools: Wallsend PublicPlattsburg Public and St Patrick’s Primary. There is one junior high school, Callaghan College Wallsend Campus, which teaches years 7 to 10. The school then feeds into the Jesmond Campus for Year 11 and 12.
