THE HISTORIC STATION
A unique destination in the heart of Newcastle
With a grand outdoor event piazza on the former railway platform, and a vibrant mix of local retailers - there's something for everyone at The Station.
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, 'The Flyer' train, and new landscaped community space opening soon - there's plenty to see and do!
Activities at The Station are adapting as COVID-19 continues to affect the way we live, work and play.
The Station's footprint has been reduced, and our shops are changing the way they're operating. Wherever you can, please keep supporting our Station retailers through their online activities.
The space between The Station's former bus depot and Market Street Lawn is being transformed into a vibrant new public space, opening late 2020!
The Station has a huge 3,500m2 outdoor piazza, and a variety of internal spaces perfect for smaller activities. Whilst all events are currently on hold, we'd still love to hear your ideas for later down the track when events are back in business.
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.
