Darby Street in Cooks Hill has a relaxed bohemian style with cafes and galleries to browse while The Junction has a smattering of restaurants.
Provedores that are well worth visiting include Fishermen's Wharf Seafoods at the Co-op, Wicked Chocolates and PeaBerry Ground Coffee. At Sunday's Newcastle City Farmers Markets you can stock up on fresh, local produce. And don't forget... the Hunter Valley vineyards are just over an hour away.
