Hamilton Chamber is a not-for-profit entity overseen by an elected management committee of volunteers selected from our membership base. Full membership is open to any business owner/operator or building owner within the Special Benefit Rate zones.

We have a modest staff and a group of active volunteers to manage our day to day activities.

Hamilton Chamber is a business advocacy group tasked with driving the Hamilton community forward and revitalising our great suburb. We use place-making projects, public events, partnerships with business and organisations, and strategic planning to bring life into our CBD.

Some of our best known projects include:

  • Free wi-fi throughout Beaumont St
  • A taste of Beaumont including iconic restaurants and cafes and some of Newcastle city's best street festivals - See More @ Beaumont St Carnivale & China Festival

If you’d like to know more about what we do, we encourage business owners/operators, residents, and other interested parties to participate in our Hamilton Monthly Networking Event which will allow you to work closely with the community and our organisation to get involvement  in specific projects in the area.


20 Years Strong, working for the growth and further development of Hamilton. It was a little step, but now this is a big organization and community support as a service based non-profit organization.

We work to create a positive, active environment that stimulates economic and social life in the City Centre. Day after day, we receive a delightful response from the people who keep our thinking in their mind. Now, we are helping more than 100 businesses engage with their community.


Hamilton Chamber is funded through a business rate levy collected from the CBD Area and incorporating the commercial zone in Beaumont Street.

There are 500+ businesses in our catchment area. We also receive some membership funding, with a small annual fee payable by those who choose to become members. As an independent organisation, we are eligible to seek grants and corporate sponsorships for our programs, and to undertake fee-for-service activities.
