The View from King Street

I'm Wayne Mullen. I've moved up from Sydney to Newcastle part time. I'm always amazed at how down outsiders can be about this city. I have a great time in Newcastle. I eat well, live near the beach and have great friends. I thought I'd use this blog to share my thoughts about photographs, art and events around town!

I walked past the Lucky Country on the weekend. The pub was just about to open and although I didn’t get to look around it appears it will have a rather nice beer garden. I hope that they don’t take over the little local park as an outside drinking area though! 
But nice to see that grand old building back in action.

OMG. Are you ready for the”Newcastles of the World" Website?
There is even an annual conference. Final proof that Newy is a state of mind, not just a place.

Went to “Design on your Doorstep” yesterday. Was dead impressed with the cardboard Council Administration Block/bookshelf built by the Australian Institute of Architects. It has a bit of a lean but…meh. They’re architects not engineers.

Have passed by this apartment block on Parkway and Darby for years. But have never noticed it was called “Acropolis”. Funny name given it means “High City” and is actually in a low lying suburb.
