Beaumont Street /ˈbˌmɒnt/ is a major street in Newcastle, Australia running from the Islington antiques district on Maitland Road to Henry Park in Hamilton South to. While the southernmost end of the street is primarily residential, the stretch between Tudor and Donald Streets is recognised as Newcastle's "Little Italy". In recent years,[when?] the northernmost end of Beaumont Street (between the Sydney Junction Hotel and The Gateway Hotel on Maitland Road) has become Newcastle's new bohemian district with some saying it could be seen as the gay district.[citation needed]
