Charlestown Guide

Charlestown Square is probably the first mall on everyone.s mind when it comes to retail therapy. A mere 6 kilometres. drive away from the central business district of Newcastle, NSW, Australia, the shopping centre is situated just off the Pacific Highway in the Charlestown region. Originally erected in 1979 as a double-storey building, the structure has since undergone major developments and is considered one of the most sizable shopping centres in the Newcastle and Hunter region. The Charlestown Square now houses more than 170 stores within 3 levels, in which one can find major brands such as Myer (the only one available in the Hunter region), Target, Coles and Woolworths. You can also relax and enjoy a delicious meal or two with the array of appetizing fare available at both the food courts.

Shoppers can also look forward to the future expansion for Charlestown Square, which will include 100 brand new shops as well as a new Cineplex. The shopping centre is expected to be given a complete facelift by the year 2010.

Another shopping centre worth visiting in Newcastle is the Westfield Kotara. It was originally known as Kotara Fair when it was opened in 1965 but has since taken on the name Westfield Kotara after being purchased by The Westfield Group in 2003. Here, shoppers can take their pick from a wide range of tenants including Coles, Kmart, David Jones and Toys .R. Us.

If you are looking to purchase fresh food and produce, it is wise to make the Marketown Shopping Centre your next stop. The building houses a spacious and diversely.stocked supermarket as well as 32 specialty stores. Or if you prefer to wine and dine with friends and loved ones, hop on to a bus and head on to the Hamilton Business District, where one can taste a multitude of scrumptious cuisine amidst a variety of commercial businesses and internationally acclaimed hotels.

Can.t wait to shop till you drop? All you have to do is to get a great car hire found anywhere within the city. Affordable car hires are not hard to find, you just need to check with your local directory and select a car that will ensure greater convenience when you drive around the shopping districts.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).
