Hi there! My name is Siobhan Curran.
Since my first visit to Newcastle in 1998 I have been a big fan of ‘Australia’s most underrated city’ (Lonely Planet), so much so our family moved here from Sydney in 2010.
Several months later, I started The Novocastrian Files. Firstly as a way of finding out more about some of the interesting and talented locals I was discovering and secondly as a means of identifying where the good coffee / lunch / dinner spots are via their recommendations.
I continue to use whatever spare time I have shining a spotlight on just some of the crazy good this part of the world contains, particularly things to do with creative types. Posts are published on average once a week.
The best way to reach me is email@example.com. I’m happy to hear from you regarding submissions.
