Used by locals (Novacastrians), people from adjacent regions as close as Maitland, or as far as the Central Coast, and ex-patriots now living in Sydney.
Also spelt as 'newy'
"Lets go clubbing in newie tonight"
"I'm going up to newie for a few days to visit friends"
something, e.g. a song, a film, etc., that is new.
