Carrington NSW real estate combines small-town charm with harbour views and central CBD access
Once known as the “industrial island,” this up-and-coming suburb is one of Newcastle’s most promising places to buy
Located just 8 minutes from the CBD, this harbourside suburb combines attractive homes, local amenities and industrial facilities in one charming package.
Originally a small, unpopulated island, Carrington was used for catching fish, oysters and mud crabs by the Awabakal and Worimi peoples. The island was so small that it would sink below the water at high tide — however, it was gradually built up throughout the 1800s by English settlers. Carrington became a working-class suburb in 1888, with the population booming in the 1920s thanks to the nearby BHP steelworks.
Today, this flourishing suburb is known for its heritage homes, small-town atmosphere and convenient city lifestyle. Locals love Carrington’s coastal feel and quiet streets — plus, the nearby CBD access makes it easy to experience Newcastle’s vibrant nightlife, perfect for renters and young couples. New families enjoy Carrington’s proximity to private and Catholic schools in neighbouring suburbs.
As one of Newcastle’s fastest-growing up-and-coming areas, Carrington NSW real estate is quickly climbing the property ladder. Median home prices have risen 15.5% over the past 12 months and 59.06% over the past five years. As house prices in Newcastle continue to skyrocket, keen buyers and savvy investors should keep an eye on Carrington real estate in NSW.
