Cooks Hill

Wikipedia tells us that Cooks Hill is an inner city suburb of Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia. It is typified by its tree lined streets, rows of Victorian terrace housing, turn of the century timber cottages and corner pubs. 

Cooks Hill is the home of popular "eat street" Darby Street. The street has approximately 25 restaurants and caf├ęs, some which enjoy alfresco dining. It is home to many of the city's well-known pubs, such as The Cricketers Arms Hotel, The Oriental Hotel, The Delaney and the Commonwealth Hotel. Parry street was named the polar explorer Sir William Edward Parry who worked as a commissioner of the A.A Company in 1829.

The suburb houses the Newcastle Region Art Gallery, with works by significant artists, including Sidney Nolan, William Dobell, Russell Drysdale, and Peter Preston. Cooks Hill has several small private art galleries, previously including the Von Bertouch Gallery founded by the late Anne Von Bertouch.
