After a year and a half of searching we have it! Its small, its in the city, and its ours.
(And its the reason this is so late to get out!)
ALL FORESHORE TRAM SHED CLASSES WILL NOW BE STARTING AT THIS LOCATION
PLEASE CHECK THE TIMETABLE FOR POTENTIAL CHANGES TO YOUR CLASSES BEFORE ATTENDING
Our new space is located at 168 Hunter St, Newcastle NSW 2300
Our class format will be changing! We will now start at the gym, go outdoors for part and finish at the gym. And no matter how bad the weather we can ensure classes go ahead!
We know parking is going to be an issue so we are trying to sort some private parking out the front of the space but that may be weeks away. So in the meantime we have done some scouting and come back with this.
We signed the lease for this space less than a day ago and we will be putting 100% effort into getting it ready for our first classes on the 31st of Jan! The space will be fairly simple for the first few weeks until things settle but we will be adding and creating new obstacle's as soon as we can.
THE CHANGED TIMETABLE
Classes start back in less than a week! so make sure if you are booking for a term get in before your choice class books out.
We trialed some memberships last term and decided to go ahead with releasing our full membership options to the community. These are mainly aimed at the older students but we will consider younger students that are really driven to improve!
Memberships ( 12+ yrs)
Bronze - Unlimited open sessions + strength: $19 pw
Silver - 3 sessions (open sessions or classes) + strength : $28 pw
Gold - Unlimited everything : $37
Iron - Strength and Weights Access only : $7 pw
We have decided to officially list strength and conditioning on our timetable so we can introduce weight resistance training and specialized workouts aimed at injury prevention and power generation. Every membership has strength included in it!
That is all our new critical information. Keep reading for more updates on our community.
NEW SUNDAY COACH
John has been part of Newcastle parkour for about 8 years now and has been teaching parkour classes on and off with head coach Alex over the last 5 years. He brings a different style of teaching and coaching and we are excited to have his influence in classes!
NEWLY PROMOTED COACHES
Three of our assistant instructors Mirina, Finn and Elise have been promoted to instructor! They have taken over a year long training program under Head coach Alex and Senior coach Dylan. You will be seeing them take over more responsibility in classes and in the community.
We are deeply proud of how much responsibility and dedication these x students have taken on and as a consequence developed themselves into fantastic instructors and excellent role models in our community.

Market Garden Project
After a very crazy and stressful few months we are finally finished!
Our designer and community member Clarence Henderson from Fluence Design was the driving force behind the entire thing and we are really proud of just how well the whole thing ended up.
With love from all of us here at Newcastle parkour.
