Sunny days ahead with the arrival of new kiosk

20 Dec 2022

Christmas has come early for Newcastle beachgoers, with the opening of a new kiosk at Dixon Park Beach just in time for the busy summer school holiday period.

Newcastle’s newest beach coffee haunt, Sunnyboy Kiosk, serves up 15 flavours of gelato, fresh juices, acai bowls, pastries, fish and chips, and hamburgers, with ample shade and seating, all overlooking Bathers Way and delivered as part of City of Newcastle’s ongoing coastal revitalisation works.

Councillor Carol Duncan said the well-positioned kiosk will see it used year-round by locals and visitors.

“Newcastle's southern beaches are world-renowned, and the revitalisation of the kiosk demonstrates City of Newcastle’s commitment to ensuring our incredible coastal assets remain accessible and attractive for our community to enjoy,” Cr Duncan said.

“The opening of the kiosk completes the building’s transformation and complements the iconic Mark Richards mural, which has been expertly renewed by Up&Up Inspirations.

“We look forward seeing how the community interacts with the revitalised space throughout the summer.”

Sunnyboy Kiosk lessee and operators Tom and Nova Carias said they were ready to serve up tasty treats for the community at Dixon Park Beach.

“Sunnyboy Kiosk will be the place to be this summer," Ms Carias said.

“We opened our doors to the public this week just in time for the start of the summer school holidays and we look forward to sunny days ahead welcoming surfers straight out of the water, beachgoers off the beach with sandy feet and meeting locals who will make this their regular coffee haunt.”

The refurbishment of the Dixon Park Beach kiosk supports City of Newcastle’s Coastal Revitalisation program, which began in 2010 as part of a long-term commitment to enhance Newcastle’s coastline.
