INFLUENCE-HERS: Communications Consultant // Kate Carragher, By Kian by Kian West

Presenting a balanced representation of Newcastle has always been really important to us at Mirage.

Rediscovering Newcastle - May, by Amy Theodore by Amy Theodore

Newcastle: a city that isn’t short on places to go for a walk. Whether you want to walk by the beach or in the bush, something easygoing or something to spike your heart rate, there will be a trail ready and waiting somewhere for you to scratch that hiking itch. I didn’t originally plan on writing a piece paying tribute to a few of the many famous walks in this city, but it seems that’s where the words have taken me this month.
