Newcastle's Star Hotel is perhaps best known for the riot of 19 September 1979 and the song of the same name by Cold Chisel. But the site is one of Newcastle's earliest large commercial complexes with a built history dating back to the 1850s. The Star Hotel site was sold early 2013 to a developer for a mixed-use complex including residential, commercial, retail and parking spaces. Fully renovated architecturally designed two bedroom apartments, located in the heart of Newcastle's CBD. HOME !
