Hope at Honeysuckle

The transformation of the historic Wharf building is one step closer

Newcastle’s newest destination for food, entertainment and gourmet Hunter products is one step closer with the development application officially launched for ‘Hope at Honeysuckle.’

HCCDC Chief Operating Officer Valentina Misevska said ‘Hope at Honeysuckle’ will bring the best of the Hunter to Newcastle and submitting the development application was a key milestone for this exciting venture.

“Hope at Honeysuckle is set to become something really special in the heart of Newcastle and once fitted out, the adaptive reuse of the building will really showcase the best of this precinct and create a unique experience for both locals and visitors,” Ms. Misevska said.

The vibrant destination venue will offer fun experiences both day and night, with Honeysuckle coming to life.

Owner, Michael Hope is positive about the project progressing soon,

“We have worked closely with our architects to come up with a design that really showcases the location while being sympathetic to the original fabric of the building.

“It was really important for us to bring a feeling of space to ‘Hope at Honeysuckle,’ but instead of looking out at rolling hills and rows of vines, that feeling will come from the expanse of water and views to the horizon,” Mr. Hope said.

The new hospitality destination will feature a cellar door, providore retail, restaurant, and dining options. There will also be programming of the space to include wine tastings, cooking masterclasses, and beer matching experiences.
