Hi and welcome to the Newcastle area. My name is Laurie Coleman and I am the local Coordinator for the Williamtown area.

Newcastle is the capital of the Hunter Valley and is Australia’s second oldest city and Australia’s sixth largest.  The main Defence establishments are RAAF Base Williamtown and Bullecourt Barracks at Adamstown.
