The Station, Newcastle

Newcastle's most unique pop-up destination at the revitalised former city railway station. The Station's temporary activation is all about fun and creativity in a unique heritage setting. 

While its exciting long-term use is being determined, The Station is being enjoyed as a pop-up community hub for events, shopping and recreation.

The Station features:

  • creative workshop spaces and great shopping - including jewellery, clothing, books, gifts homewares and art
  • a mix of market days, creative workshops, fitness, music and foodie events
  • a huge outdoor piazza with sheltered tables, seating and adjoining lawns for picnics - and plenty of room for exercise and play
  • a kids corner with a scooter track, hopscotch, sensory flowers, and a big frog and snake.

Our transformation of The Station has been delivered as part of NSW Government's Revitalising Newcastle program.
