Cooks Hill is an inner city suburb of Newcastle, New South Wales. It is typified by its tree lined streets, rows of Victorian terrace housing, turn of the century timber cottages and corner pubs. Cooks Hill is probably most renowned for the popular al fresco 'eat street' - Darby Street. It is also diverse in character and is home to many of the city's well-known pubs and bars.
The suburb is also home to the Newcastle Region Art Gallery in Laman Street. The Gallery houses many works by significant artists, including works by Sidney Nolan, William Dobell, Russell Drysdale and Peter Preston and it is the custodian of a substantial public art collection. Cooks Hill has a number of smaller inner city art galleries, previously including the Von Bertouch Gallery founded by the late Anne Von Bertouch. It is believed it was the first commercial gallery outside a capital city in Australia. The area also hosts a visual arts scene and several artist-run projects such as the Back to Back gallery.
Cooks Hill is also within walking distance to the sands of Bar Beach, the bars along the harbour of Honeysuckle, and the cafes of The Junction.
Our beautiful Victorian terrace is a peaceful sanctuary amid inner city life. Enjoy a drink on the back deck, or a soak in the hot tub. With three large bedrooms and an open plan living/dining area there is plenty of space to relax.
2 hours drive from Sydney, an hour from the vinyards of the Hunter Valley, 30 mins from Newcastle's international airport.
