A suburb under the local government area of City of Lake Macquarie in New South Wales, Fassifern is located 4 kilometres north-northwest of Toronto, 25.3 kilometres west of Newcastle, 10.5 kilometres southwest of Glendale, 39.4 kilometres southeast of Cessnock and 137 kilometres northeast of the state capital of Sydney. The town began as a settlement that resulted from the establishment of operations for sawmill and coal mining in the area. The Fassifern railway station was built in 1887 and opened a year later. The Sydney-Newcastle railway line runs through the town at present, with the Fassifern station one of the route’s major stops. The Newstan Colliery, previously known as Northumberland Colliery prior to its renaming in 1950, dates back to the late 19th century. Community amenities in the predominantly residential suburb at present include the Croft Oval, Fassifern Oval, Fassifern Public School and Charlton Christian College.
