NewCastle Now

Darby Street is a unique shopping precinct that offers a true village atmosphere with over 100 boutique owner-operated businesses, each person passionate about their trade and happy to please customers. 

You would normally need to travel to an Italian country town, or a French hamlet to get a similar village vibe. Darby Street is overflowing with artisan product, giftwares, home decorating wares, fashion, coffee and food.

The street boasts three Australian Fashion Designers who have their flagship stores on the strip. While the restaurants, cafes and bars provide a wonderful haven for breakfast, lunch and dinner. And you will find the shopping experience intimate and comfortable, no matter which establishment you care to enter.
