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.
