Newcastle Startups Revive Inner City

Newcastle, north of Sydney is a major port for coal exports, but it also has some interesting sights for the tourist. Nobbys Beach is is next to the CBD. In the main street (Hunter Street), not for profit Renew Newcastle finds space for artists and other to seel the ware in otherwise vacant buildings. This started with small shop-fronts but has now taken over the former David Jones store into "The Emporium", with the storefront windows becoming individual pop-up stores.

The Newcastle Start House, at 356 Hunter Street, has office space for small businesses, including Cameron Anderson Architects, Imago Media boutique advertising agency, INKids children's apps, Tamale Creative websites, Tiger Financial Group financial consulting services and Tributech software.
