The Station — a unique long-term lease opportunity

Situated in Newcastle’s premier east end, The Station is a 1ha heritage icon property primely positioned for new development and available for long-term lease.

The site is zoned for tourism and hospitality, located within walking distance of central public transport, the city’s harbour, beaches and a growing residential hub.

A destination rich in history

Originally constructed in 1858, the former train station stands as a modern artifact reflecting the long-gone era of detailed Victorian architecture, paying homage to Newcastle’s early days.

Boasting rich architectural heritage facades, the site’s unique legacy appeal is complemented by its external landscaped piazza – perfect for outdoor events and activations – and a coveted city location offering stunning views of the waterfront.

The Station’s heritage buildings offer a generous 1775sqm floorspace ready to be repurposed, presenting a rare opportunity to breathe new life into a treasured piece of Newcastle’s history.

The vision for the site’s development is to create a ‘must-visit destination’ to gather, celebrate and experience a reimagined heritage space – a place where there is always something happening and year-round activation that attracts local and global visitors, time and time again. 

One of Australia’s most desirable places to live and holiday 

Surrounded by world-class coastlines, pristine beaches, national parks and picturesque landscapes, it’s impossible not to notice the city’s beautiful natural surroundings and the idyllic coastal lifestyle it offers. 

With stunning scenery, renowned wineries, a vibrant restaurant/cafe/bar scene and a variety of cultural, arts and sporting attractions – it’s no wonder Newcastle and the Hunter Region continually attract millions of tourists each year.

Newcastle: a thriving city and an enviable proposition

Home to the second busiest airport in NSW and a seasonal influx of cruise ship passengers, Newcastle attracts visitors from all over Australia and abroad. The city’s airport has convenient flight paths across Australia and is currently undergoing a $240 million expansion to offer direct international flights and cater to the growing number of people travelling to and from the region.

The vibrant economic hub of the Hunter region, Newcastle’s surge in hotel developments, housing options and commercial projects owes much to the considerable investment in infrastructure by the NSW Government. Private developers have also substantially increased their investment in the city, capitalising on its rare value proposition ahead of more competitive cities like Melbourne and Sydney.

In recent years the city’s workforce has grown significantly in the areas of advanced manufacturing, aerospace, defence, tourism and energy – attracting top talent and skilled workers to support local start-up businesses.

Unlock unprecedented potential

It’s Newcastle’s immense popularity and The Station’s rich history that make this a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Available for a long-term lease of up to 99 years, the site’s zoning opens up possibilities for an extensive array of commercial activities with flexibility for the establishment of new and diverse businesses.

The Station’s revitalisation will unlock the unprecedented potential of a heritage icon to benefit both locals and visitors for many years to come.
