THE HISTORIC STATION
Platform, piazza & scooter track - opening November 28
Anything can happen at The Station. With a grand outdoor event space on the former railway platform, a new landscaped piazza opening soon, and a vibrant mix of local retailers - there's something for everyone.
Home to an eclectic shopping hub (think books, jewellery, homewares and art), a creative workshop and gallery, pilates studio, pop-up kids corner, scooter track, and 'The Flyer' train - there's plenty to see and do at The Station!
Do you run a business that kids and families love to visit? Pop-up at The Station! We’re offering flexible lease opportunities and a low-risk testing ground, all within an incredible heritage space adjacent to the waterfront and Newcastle CBD.
Activities at The Station are continuing to adapt as COVID-19 affects the way we live, work and play. The Station's footprint has been temporarily reduced to best manage public safety, and our shops have made some changes to the way they're operating too.
The space between The Station's former bus depot and Market Street Lawn is being transformed into a vibrant new public space, opening November 28, 2020!
The Make Space gallery is now OPEN on weekends, showcasing a collection of local handmade creations including jewellery, homewares, clothing and one-off artworks available for viewing and purchase.
SECRET BOOK STUFF
A beautifully curated bookshop with a hand-selected collection of over 1000 pre-loved books for sale. The shopfront is reopening on October 31 - pop in for a browse and get your readers fix.
Scarlett's Pilates is a great way to challenge your strength, tone your whole body, and nourish your personal wellbeing with slow stretching and relaxation. Scarlett's Pilates is now back at The Station!
The Station has a huge outdoor event platform, a brand new piazza opening soon, and a variety of internal spaces perfect for smaller activities. We're now taking bookings for Summer 2020/21.
VISION & OBJECTIVES
Hunter and Central Coast Development Corporation owns and manages The Station, and invites you to be part of this special journey.
While an exciting long-term use is planned, The Station's temporary activation is all about trying new things and having fun with new activities, events and opportunities. Our vision for this is underpinned by an important goal: to attract people time and time again. So, we are aiming to create a dynamic destination with must-visit tenancies and events that create a vibrant, innovative and interesting destination for the community.
The objectives for The Station's temporary activation are to create:
- a must-visit destination with complementing and vibrant tenancies that regularly attracts visitors and locals;
- a memorable destination that adds vibrancy to the broader city with regular events, both big and small;
- a place with a community heart where people can share, create and celebrate; and
- a destination for people to gather and meet to enjoy food and beverage offerings.
