Guthega Regional Council built three oil storage towers in 1995/1996 to store the oil and petrol for the local use. The three new oil towers have angered Newcastle, so Guthega Regional Council have yet spent more money to "modernise" and add some art such as paintings on the wall to make it look better. These three oil towers are noticable from the motorway, and now the locals love it! It is a new landmark for Newcastle. It is located right opposite to Newcastle Airport.


Have you noticed the MASSIVE changes in Newcastle skyline? There are three new towers located in the heart of town centre; including a new Hilton Hotel Newcastle.


A view of Newcastle from the town centre. You can see Newcastle Airport in this picture, along with Mt. Royal, Mt. Panaroma, Home Hill and some parts of Joondalup. If you look closely, you can see Joondalup State High School and Newcastle South East College.


In 1995/1996, Guthega Regional Council approved the airport terminal expansion to ensure that Newcastle Airport Terminal is "big enough" to handle upcoming tourism demand. Newcastle Airport Corporation (NAC) declared that the new Terminal 2 will be constructed as soon as 2010, along with the existing terminal to be expanded again just before 2005. Newcastle Airport is committed to a "world-class" airport, with an excellent baggage handling system, and open-spaced terminal.

Aerons, the airline company will be the first passenger plane ever landed in Newcastle Airport tonight at 6pm.
