Broadmeadow is the geographic centre of Newcastle city. Its main commercial hub is located at the "Nineways".〔(Newcastle City Council, About Newcastle )〕 It is the home of the Newcastle Knights.
Broadmeadow had a population of 1,552 in 2011.
Broadmeadow was originally part of the Newcastle Pasturage Reserve of 648 hectares. It developed around the Great Northern Railway, the road to Newcastle’s western suburbs and the construction of the Sydney to Newcastle Railway in the 1880s.〔
''Nineways'' is a major intersection at Broadmeadow, originally constructed as a landscaped garden in the centre of a roundabout at the intersection of nine roads/tramlines that converge there,〔 the area was later reconstructed to have a set of traffic lights connected to only four roads. The other roads that accessed the roundabout were variously partly or fully closed off.
At ''Nineways'' stood the ''Century Theatre'', rebuilt by Hoyts Theatres after World War II, with vast foyers on two floors and seating 1600, as one of Newcastle's premier theatres for stage and screen. It was often a venue for symphony orchestra concerts after the closure of the city's Victoria Theatre, but the exodus from cinemas because of television caused its closure in the early 1970s. It was said to have sustained severe structural damage during the 1989 earthquake, and was subsequently quickly demolished, amidst great controversy.
