Scout Newcastle

An independently owned and operated retail destination in the heart of Newcastle, NSW. Deeply committed to curating special, practical, functional and sustainably produced long-lasting items locally and abroad.

It’s not enough that it is beautiful, it has to be made well, made in a safe and fair environment, ethically made with intent and again... made to last.

Scout is evolving and will continue too. Our online offering is very much an abbreviated snapshot of what you will discover at our bricks’n’mortar store on Darby St here in Cooks Hill, Newcastle.

We love sending parcels around Australia and beyond, but we love seeing you in-store more than anything! Darby St is home to arguably some of the best food, coffee & retail in Newcastle, we highly recommend doing brunch followed by a walk around Cooks Hill.

Highlights include the Newcastle Art Gallery (currently CLOSED for upgrades), Civic Park, BlackBird Corner, Cooks Hill Books & Records, Wil & Sons, Sourced Vintage, Autumn Rooms, Tea Collective, Goldbergs, Baba Yaga, Core Espresso, Pappa Sven and of course our brother store Abicus, just across the road!

The free City Of Newcastle App is a great reference point for discovering Newcastle… Be sure to look out for the Makers X Traders walking trails.
