Newcastle Breakwall - Nobb's Headland

Living and studying in the Hunter and Central Coast offers international students all the convenience of a big city without the overcrowding.
 
Newcastle is Australia’s second oldest city and seventh largest city and is only 150km north of Sydney. It is located in the heart of the Hunter Region and bordered by a stunning coastline with beautiful beaches. 
 
The Newcastle and Central Coast regions are famous for their great climate, spectacular surf beaches, art galleries, cafes, restaurants and diverse shops and markets. A relaxed and safe lifestyle, beautiful beaches and a lively arts and entertainment scene are just some of the benefits you can enjoy.
 
Newcastle was voted ninth in Lonely Planet’s Top Ten Cities in the world, and was named fourth most livable city in Australia based on climate, culture, entertainment, affordability and standard of living. Hunter TAFE can assist you to find suitable accommodation. Our Newcastle campus has student accommodation directly opposite the campus; it is modern, secure and reasonably priced.
 
Local government studies show that people living in Newcastle are approximately one and a half times less likely to be a victim of crime than if you lived in Sydney.
