Suburb Overview

Stockton is a suburb of Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia, located 1 km from Newcastle's central business district. It is the only suburb of Newcastle that lies north of the Hunter River.

Stockton is a peninsula, with the Hunter River at the south and south-west and the Pacific Ocean at the east. On the eastern side are sand dunes and surfing beaches, with numerous shipwrecks at its north, while on the western side there are marshes, where many migratory birds can be spotted. There are numerous spots at Stockton suitable for recreational fishing.

For many years, Stockton was linked to Newcastle's Central Business District at the south by passenger and vehicular ferry services. While there is still a passenger ferry service, vehicular traffic is now connected by the Stockton Bridge, built in 1971 as part of a northern detour to the outside world.

Stockton was settled almost as soon as the foundation of Newcastle in 1797. At first it was a notorious hideout for pirates ;but for much of the 19th century it served as an industrial and mining base. In 1896 tragedy struck the local colliery, in which a gas leak killed 11 people. It has become a working-class dormitory suburb during the 20th century, and remains so today for its 5000 residents.

Stocktonites are particularly proud of Dave Sands, a local resident and champion boxer during the years immediately after World War II. Like the Colliery Disaster, the short life of Sands was commemorated by some of the numerous memorials across this seaside village.

A Norwegian carrier, called the Sygna ran aground off Stockton Beach during a major storm in 1974. This is a well known landmark and draw card for visitors.

Stockton Beach is also known as the location of the 1989 rape and murder of Newcastle High School student and Fern Bay resident Leigh Leigh. A play, Blackrock , and also a movie of the same name, were inspired by this event.

Despite being technically an inner-city suburb of Newcastle, Stockton has a country town atmosphere because of its isolation. It has its own shops, churches, two clubhouses, three pubs, a swimming pool, and a caravan park. It also has a large residential unit for people with developmental disability, a public school and a Catholic Primary School -Saint Peter's Stockton. High school students catch the ferry or bus to go to schools in the city of Newcastle.

Although a town with a million-dollar view, Stockton is proudly a working-class suburb. Its popular surfing culture has in the past given the town a somewhat tarnished image. In recent years, however, the town has begun to re-invent itself with a push for young professionals to move in from other centres such as Sydney. This practice has led to an increase in real estate prices, a cause for resentment amongst some locals.

Plans to Attract wealthier property investors into the area have somewhat lapsed with the August 2011 Hexavalent Chromium leak directly affecting the suburb, continuing safety issues with the Ammonia plant in neighbouring Suburb Kooragang do little to assuage residents or property investors.
