It is our goal to make Charlestown Square easily accessible from any direction, which is why you can access the shopping centre via Ferris Street, Chapman Street, Pearson Street or Ridley Street. The Charlestown Square is approximately six kilometres south of Newcastle, adjacent to the Pacific Highway. Please see the map below for the best access points.
Getting to Charlestown Square by bus is also quick and easy. Bus stops are located on Smart Street and Pearson Street, just a short walk from the Centre’s main entrance off Pearson Street.
