Real Estate Newport
Newport, a green oasis close to the centre
Combining a peaceful family friendly atmosphere with an exuberant artistic community and natural beauty, Newport offers a surprisingly green oasis close to the centre of Melbourne. Newport’s position in the shadow of the West Gate Bridge and at the point where the Yarra River meets Port Phillip Bay gives it a horizon and outlook which is stunning.
On weekends, many locals enjoying bike-riding, running, cycling, and boating in the Newport Lakes and Newport Lakes Park, Greenwich Bay and the Sandy Point Conservation area. The local sporting park, Paisley Park, includes a gymnasium and swimming pool, golf course, premier league soccer facility, bowling club, badminton centre and lacrosse fields for sporty young couples and families.
Newport’s community-based arts centre, The Substation, is a vibrant artistic hub for the Hobsons Bay region. Every year, the Substation hosts a Contemporary Art Prize, but the centre also holds a monthly Artists’ Market, a children’s theatre, the Westside Circus, the Koori Night Market, dance classes, art exhibitions, cabaret and comedy, as well as jazz and contemporary music performances.
