I'll be moving to newcastle next year where i will be working at newcastle university, probably for 6 or months. I am a student, altho I wont be studying at the univeristy, and being from South Africa, I am on a serious budget. What are the affordable and somewhat nice subsurbs to stay in Newcastle, close to the university?
The university website suggests a number of places, but I'm not sure which ones to choose in terms of afforadibility, if I'm looking at a price range of $50 - %60 per week ($80 incl. electricity etc.)
Also, are any of the suburbs near the beach affordable e.g. Bar Beach, the junction, Newcastle Beach, The hill?
Okay, thats a lot of questions. Hope you can help.
