 A Message From Carol

“I began Lost Newcastle in 2012 while working for the ABC. What was initially a weekly radio segment featuring stories about local people, places, items of interest, even myths and urban legends, rapidly grew into a small online community where Novocastrians shared their own photos and stories of their family history in the Newcastle and Hunter Valley region.

Lost Newcastle now has over 56,000 members – all passionate about this beautiful region and its history. My thanks to everyone who has shared a photo, an anecdote or a reminiscence with us. Lost Newcastle isn’t ‘lost’ at all, but has become a gathering place and source of numerous reunions of friends, colleagues and families.

I hope you enjoy it!”
