Lost Newcastle was born from a regular segment hosted by former ABC Newcastle broadcaster, Carol Duncan.

The radio series began as Local Treasures – a weekly segment featuring some of Newcastle’s most knowledgeable historians and storytellers.

The aim of Lost Newcastle is to collect the photos and stories of the Newcastle and Hunter Valley region from family collections and photo albums – the boxes of photos on top of grandparents’ wardrobes that go undusted, and unloved – and sadly -all too off to the rubbish dump when our older family members die.

Lost Newcastle is made possible by the incredible enthusiasm and generosity of tens of thousands of Novocastrians!
