Welcome to HUNTERhunter.

HUNTERhunter started with Fiona and Alissa, a couple of frustrated locals living in Newcastle who were tired of Googling and trawling the internet trying to discover where to go, what to do and what was new in the Newcastle and Hunter region.

Launching in 2013 HUNTERhunter has been all about revealing hidden treasures and secret gems, keeping up-to-date with all that’s new and what’s going on around Newcastle, the Hunter Valley, Port Stephens and Central Coast.

What you read about is just our opinions, it’s what we think you should drop in and check out, these businesses are on HUNTERhunter because we think they are interesting and unique.

We are pretty excited about what’s happening in our city and all that surrounds it and love bringing fresh news to you each week. So don’t be shy, sign up to the newsletter, or join us on social media.
