The Station is open for business. Written by Neroli Foster
Visitors to The Station are able to shop, learn, enjoy fantastic coffee, and regular food trucks. Activities at The Station respond to specific feedback from the community and the continued desire for more inner-city activity and appeal.
Our core partners have created a retail store and markets showcasing and selling high quality designed and handmade products. Technology based educational workshops, demos and research will bring worldwide expertise to Newcastle. A café will support local roasters and producers and give visitors a reason to stay and play a while in this iconic location. A bar with local brews from the city, bay and valley will open at events and functions.
It’s a framework to create something for everyone. An ‘everyday’ destination, a space for community activity and a platform to kick off some great events. Choose your destination and jump on board.
Café – Stunning scenery, plenty of room for the kids to run, fantastic Floozy coffee, a fresh, simple and kid friendly menu. Café open every day.
