Situated two hours north of Sydney, Newcastle is the largest city in New South Wales after Sydney. In 1911, BHP chose Newcastle as the site for its steelworks due to the proximity of local coal. It continued as the major employer in the city until the steelworks closed in 1999. Since then, the city has transformed the harbour foreshore (site of the old steelworks) into a wonderful residential and commercial precinct in high demand for all forms of recreation. Also many of the old buildings in the area have been re-purposed and transformed to make this a area most sought after place to live. There are also many beachside suburbs which provide a ‘surfy’ atmosphere which make it a beguiling place to live and work.
