After a long career in media, Lost Newcastle is the passion project!

Carol Duncan – Founder

I began Lost Newcastle in 2012 with the aim of encouraging a few people to share their own photos and stories of their families lives in Newcastle and the Hunter Valley.

In 2021, Lost Newcastle now has over 60,000 very active members and has taken on a life of its own.

Lost Newcastle regularly sees families and friends reunited, places and objects identified, and wonderful stories shared – often starting with the old shoebox full of photos in the top of someone’s wardrobe!

What’s YOUR Lost Newcastle story?
