Explore the diverse and creative culture
As a multicultural heart of Newcastle, Beaumont Street and the surrounding precinct takes you on a journey of flavours. This is one of Newcastle’s renowned dining and coffee connoisseur destinations. At the northern end of Beaumont Street sits the Islington antique district on Maitland Road, with vintage treasures to be found. Beaumont Street was home to Newcastle’s early Italian and Greek immigrants, their heritage still shining through the strong Mediterranean dining focus. There is an eclectic mix of health, wellness, gifts, books and collectible stores complimented by the expected grocery, chemists, banks and everyday essentials.
A highly recommended activity if you are new to the area is the Hamilton Walking Tour. Discover how a 19th century settlement of immigrant coal miners transformed into the vibrant multicultural suburb of Hamilton. Use the Walking Tour PDF Brochure to guide you to each of the historic sites.
