The historic Station

The Station is 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 with an eclectic shopping hub (think books, jewellery, homewares and art), the Wildflower City cafe, and a local artisans workshop and gallery. The platform is also home to a pop-up kids corner and scooter track, The Flyer train, and a free readers lending library.


As COVID-19 continues to change the way we live, work and play - The Station's footprint is also changing to best manage public safety.

For now, this means we're temporarily removing access to the public platform, scooter track and kids corner, and all events at The Station have been postponed. You'll also see changes to the way our retailers are trading, including temporary shopfront closures for Wildflower City, Make Space and Secret Book Stuff, and an increased focus on online activities.

Activation and events will continue at an appropriate time in accordance with public health orders. Until then we thank you for your patience and understanding, and for continuing to support our Station retailers and independent creatives wherever possible during this challenging time.



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.
