New ideas for improved public space coming to Darby Street

Deputy Lord Mayor Declan Clausen with Darby Street Three Monkeys Café owner Ant Strachan

City of Newcastle is working to enhance the outdoor dining experience along Darby Street while improving safety and accessibility for pedestrians and cyclists.


A six-month trial starting in spring will see the footpath widened between Sanctum and Goldbergs restaurants. This work will see a removable platform installed to increase space for outdoor dining. This will be made possible during the trial period by extending a dining platform over seven existing car parking spaces.
