Do you run a business that kids and families love to visit?

Are you looking to launch a new range, promote a seasonal offering, create unique customer experiences, or trial bricks-and-mortar retail?

Then we want you to join our precinct.

The Station is Newcastle’s heritage former railway station that sits between the city’s eclectic East End and the waterfront. With a new landscaped piazza, kids scooter track, shopping and regular events - we are establishing a destination for the families of Newcastle.


Family-friendly Food

We’re looking for a fantastic bakery or cafe with colourful options for the kids as well as delicious locally inspired flavours for people living and working in the precinct to enjoy. We see this as an anchor destination for The Station.

Shopper's Delights

High quality and interesting shopping experiences that everyone can enjoy. This could be a gift shop, clothing, or general retail with a funky Newcastle flair. We see this as a valuable addition to The Station.

Toys and Apparel

A range of kids clothing, accessories, games and toys. With the light rail connecting The Station with the beach, swimwear and summer items would be a perfect match.

Education and Fun

Tying in with the nearby Newcastle Museum: kids science books, experiment and model sets, as well as interactive workshops that stir the imagination would be a great fit.


Low-Risk Testing Ground

Launch, trial, or grow your business with short-term lease options ranging from 1 month to 18 months. Complimenting this, we’re offering flexible rates to help you get established and thrive.

Location and Placemaking

If you run a business that kids and families would love, we’re offering short-term leases and a low-risk testing ground all within an incredible heritage space adjacent to the waterfront and Newcastle CBD.

Events and Programming

The Station’s events program is in full swing with a mix of weekend markets, pop-up music and food events, and family activities that attract people from the all over the region.

Marketing Support

The Station has an established social media presence. We will support retailers with one round of professional photography when they commence, followed by a profile of their business on our website. Each month we will request activity updates that can be shared through our social channels.

Flexible lease options available

Recently refurbished retail tenancies, range in size from 45m2 to 150m2.

We're temporarily activating The Station until June 2022. We want to attract families and visitors to the city and to activate this unique precinct during the week and on the weekends with high quality events, experiences and retail.
