ASTRA AEROLAB IS LOCATED IN PORT STEPHENS, NEW SOUTH WALES. JUST 30 MINUTES FROM NEWCASTLE – AUSTRALIA’S SIXTH LARGEST CITY AND BIGGEST REGIONAL ECONOMY.
With a population of more than 700,000, the Greater Hunter Region boasts a University ranked in the top 1% in the world, one of Australia’s largest and most diverse ports and continued strong economic growth. The Region is undergoing broad transformation as a result of major urban renewal and is establishing itself as a leading smart city. Significant investment in infrastructure projects and transport networks are supporting regional development, increasing connectivity and liveability.
The region has seen strategic growth in knowledge industries, with the expansion of health, defence industries, higher education, research centres and professional and technical services. These industries, along with the traditional energy and manufacturing sectors, are providing the foundation for future growth of Newcastle and the broader region.
The vibrant, unique and culturally rich region offers a diversity of experiences and a vast range of facilities you would expect from a global city. Quality dining, nightlife and arts make it an attractive place to live, work, visit and invest. A sun-drenched subtropical climate, magnificent beaches, national parks and vineyards all lie close by.
Astra Aerolab is a short drive to Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, the Hunter Valley and just two hours north of Sydney. It’s immediately adjoining the fast growing Newcastle Airport and the RAAF Base Williamtown.
This one-of-a-kind site provides direct airside access where diverse industries can co-locate, collaborate and flourish with other cutting edge innovators. It will be the setting of choice for those pushing the boundaries of aerospace innovation, education and advanced manufacturing.
