In Newcastle CBD, its a Sunday afternoon around 5;30pm everyday. Dead, boring and occasionally, you may get mugged or bashed which livens things up a bit.
Go to the train station for a guaranteed biff or be thrown on the train tracks when a train approaches the station by some 55IQ bearded boofhead or tattooed skank.
On the flip side, head to the beach and you may pick up a supermodel girlfriend, have your goods stolen on the beach, grab a nice meal later, have your car broken in to, then drive home with an escort of bikers surrounding your car.
Top place if you can function with a blood pressure reading of 200/100 every day.

A very safe Coastal City. Although it has a checked past, it is new and vibrant with very little crime. However, Newcastle has a medium to high drug problem stemming from the extremely high drug problem from Sydney.

Little to no Night life after 12 Midnight.

Pretty dodgy place. Walking alone in the main streets of cbd late at night is suicide. Vandalism is a huge problem aswell as druggies, homeless, aggressive and extremely rude and arrogant people. People death stare you in the streets for no reason and make you feel uncomfortable. Fights occur all the time around bars due to the natural idiocy culture here. Very dirty and filthy place although most restaurants have reasonable health standards. The cbd is dead and a ghost town and there is absolutely nothing to do in the city at all, really boring and dangerous place to live. Would not recommend this place at all. Go to Wollongong instead, although it has lots of crime aswell, its way more interesting than this place.
