The City of Newcastle is located in the Hunter Region of New South Wales, about 160 kilometres north of Sydney. The Newcastle LGA has a total land area of 186.8 sq kms and connects with the Port Stephens LGA in the north, Lake Macquarie in the South, Maitland and Cessnock in the West. Newcastle has an estimated population as at the 2011 Census of 148,531 people which is less than the predicted population of 154,777. Newcastle is the economic hub of the Hunter Region, accounting for approximately 30% of the Hunter's developed industrial space and 80% of the office space. While Newcastle's industrial sector continues to play an important role, Newcastle is no longer a 'steel city'. A substantial and growing portion of Newcastle's economy is now based around the service sectors. Newcastle's workforce is over 60,000 strong and the Region's occupational structure has undergone significant up-skilling, with an increase in professional, associate professional and clerical employment. The Port of Newcastle is Australia's major bulk export port and a growing cargo and container hub. It currently handles nearly 114 million tonnes of bulk cargo, worth $17.4 Billion per year (12 months to June 2011). It also hosts a range of ship-repair and super yacht businesses, as well as a marina and fishing cooperative.
