Wallsend Coming to Life (After Lockdown)
There is a great deal to love about Wallsend.
Residents living in Wallsend describe their town as a wonderfully quiet suburb, family-friendly and safe. Just 20 minutes from Newcastle's CBD and beaches and its proximity to the Hunter Expressway (not to mention the realistic and still affordable real estate prices) make Wallsend a haven for families.
With all the conveniences of a thriving community, this once mining town has become a vibrant, family-friendly suburb with a thriving central business district that includes everything local residents require without the need to travel. For many, a shopping trip involves a short walk or drive to the Wallsend Village Shopping Centre or Nelson Street, where there is a wide choice of major supermarkets, banks, fashion, convenience and retail stores, medical services, coffee shops, restaurants, bakeries, pharmacies, hairdressers and beauticians - all coming together to form a dynamic business community.
The local business community is represented by the Wallsend Town Business Association (WTBA), which works to promote Wallsend as a destination and support local business and commercial property owners as well as community groups. Wayne Rogers, President of the WTBA, wants people to know that Wallsend is "coming to life" after lockdown and that it's business as usual
