Carrington is located in Port Stephens, and is a suburb of Newcastle located 162 kilometres north-east of Sydney. Named for Lord Carrington, the governor of N.S.W. in 1887, this area began humbly as an aboriginal site for gathering mud crabs and oysters. Through several waves of gentrification, Carrington now is mixed between high-end housing, industry and commercial development. This suburb is accessible by Throsby Street's Cowper Street Bridge or by the local port.
