Have your say on the future of Nobbys Headland

Do you have a cracking idea about how Nobbys Headland could be put to good use?

Well, the Port Authority of NSW, who owns the site, is calling on submissions from the community on potential future uses of the iconic Newcastle landmark.

The site includes the three cottages, ancillary buildings, and grounds. It excludes Macquarie Pier, the signal station and lighthouse buildings and their footprints.

The Port Authority is currently in consultation with local interest groups, businesses and the broader community and the data gathered during this process will inform an expression of interest for long term use.

Now you can have your say in person by dropping into Nobbys Headland on the following dates:

  • Saturday 19 October from 9am to 10.30am
  • Wednesday 23 October from 7am to 8.30am
  • Saturday 26 October from 2.30pm to 4pm

You can also register your brilliant idea online, via email at or over the phone on 4965 4317.

Submissions close on Wednesday 28 October.
