Retail areas: Honeysuckle
The Honeysuckle precinct is a mixed use urban renewal development along the Newcastle CBD and harbour. The precinct is not solely a retail area but includes small shops and commercial premises along with cafes, bars and restaurants, a hotel and residential apartments and townhouses. A largely pedestrianised area, Honeysuckle incorporates significant areas of well-designed public space that include gathering areas, seating, public art and an interactive water play feature.
The site is bordered by a harbourfront shared pathway, making it attractive to pedestrians and cyclists. Accessible by foot or bicycle from the Newcastle CBD, the precinct is also close to public transport. It features significant areas of well-designed public open space, and has become a popular destination for both locals and visitors.
