EDGEWORTH


Each week we will be highlighting one of our surrounding suburbs with some information about the suburb for potential buyers looking at the area. This week’s suburb is Edgeworth.


The suburb of Edgeworth, located in Western Lake Macquarie, nestled in between Glendale and Barnsley, is 18kms west of Newcastle CBD. Edgeworth has a population of approximately 6252 (at 2016 Census).
Edgeworth was originally known as Cocked Hat Creek until 1885 when it was then named Young Wallsend. It was named this until 1960 when it was renamed Edgeworth, after Sir Tannatt William Edgeworth David, a geologist who arrived in NSW in 1882.

Edgeworth features a shopping centre, which has Coles, Bakers Delight, Pharmacy, Butcher, Bottleshop, Post Office and many more. Edgeworth has three primary schools, Edgeworth Public School, Edgeworth Heights Public School and St Benedict’s Primary School. Edgeworth also has an Aldi, a Bowling Club, a pub, McDonald's, aged care facility and multiple great playgrounds for children. 

Edgeworth is a great sporting suburb, home to the Edgeworth Eagles Soccer Club, as well as Sugar Valley Netball Club. Edgeworth has a unique attraction Lake Macquarie Live Steam Locomotive Society, a great day out for the family! Unfortunately it is not currently running due to COVID, but will hopefully be open to the public again soon.

The suburb of Edgeworth also houses the office of Bill Shepherd Real Estate!
Edgeworth has it all!
