From the roaring success of the Northstars Ice Hockey Club to the triumphant Newcastle Northstars dominating the Australian Ice Hockey League, our city is a hotbed for this electrifying sport. Picture this: six-time national champions, clinching victories in 2003, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2015, and 2016, with six additional Grand Final appearances. Hunter Ice Skating Stadium hosts the Newcastle Ice Hockey League’s summer and winter competitions, catering to those seeking the thrill of competition and those looking for a more casual experience.
