Spotlight on Lambton


Lambton is a lovely suburb with many advantages. Consider Lambton for your next move or property investment. Slightly removed from the main centre of Newcastle, Lambton is a quiet suburb with wide tree-lined streets and cute miners’ cottages. With the benefits of suburbia and the convenience of a ten-minute drive into the hubbub of the city centre, Lambton is a wonderful location to consider.


Situated between New Lambton, New Lambton Heights, and North Lambton, the suburb of Lambton is comparatively flat, ideal for cycling. Bordered to the north by Newcastle Rd and the south by Womboin Rd. Drive to Merewether beach, Civic Park, or Carrington in under fifteen minutes. You can even get to Lake Macquarie’s northern most point, Warners Bay, in fifteen minutes by taking the Newcastle Inner City Bypass. Choose community-oriented quiet suburban living with no more than a fifteen-minute commute to more urban centres.
