Get to know the area
North of the Hunter River and suburban standards alike, Stockton is just two kilometres (or five minutes by ferry) from Newcastle’s CBD. This sleepy seaside suburb perfectly balances the traditional with the transformative, acting as a bridge between two worlds in more ways than one.
We know Stockton features a combination of sought-after 19th century cottages and more contemporary architecture; with the median house price in the area at $850,000. This suburb may be far removed from the Steel City, but its investments are equally strong in nature—delivering a compound growth rate of 7.8% for houses and 1.0% for units in the last five years alone.
Despite its status as an inner-city suburb, Stockton has a relaxed country town atmosphere with a tight knit community feel. Home to the largest sand dunes in the Southern Hemisphere, Stockton Beach elevates the local waterside entertainment to new heights. Sand board riding, 4WD tours, a renowned surfing sceneand a fisherman’s paradise; residents make the most of the area’s prime coastal position. Isolated by location —not operation —this area is well connected by a quaint main street, local clubhouses and sports teams, pubs, cafes, and both public and private primary schools. Rich in history, community and opportunity, Stockton is suburban living in a class (or coast) of its own.
