The 30-year wait for Liverpool fans has ended with the Reds claiming their first English Premier League title and first league title since 1989-90.
Hunter fans joined in the celebrations as ecstatic Liverpool supporters gathered at the club's famous Anfield stadium headquarters.
They were led by Liverpool legend and Novocastrian Craig Johnston who famously won five league titles with the iconic Liverpool team of the 1980s.
He was also delighted that Australia and New Zealand had secured the rights to host the 2023 Women's World Cup.
"I've always said my two biggest loves in life are Australia - being Australian and Novocastrian - and football," said Johnston, who celebrated his 60th birthday on Thursday.
Johnston, who lives in Newcastle, said the winter sunshine and football news had combined to make it a "glorious, glorious morning in every sense of the word".
The feeling was particularly special, given "there's been so much scary and depressing news lately".
He saw footage of Liverpool players celebrating after Chelsea beat Manchester City 2-1 on Friday morning Australian time, which secured Liverpool the title.
He said the "pure joy of the players" would be reflected in the feelings of the club's huge fan base, thousands of which live in the Hunter.
Many Hunter people, in fact, became Liverpool fans because of Johnston.
"Took a while but we're there boys n girls . EPL Numero UNO," Newcastle (Aust) Liverpool Supporters Club member Al Barkley posted to the group's 812 members on their Facebook Page.
Title-winning manager Juergen Klopp dedicated Liverpool's championship win to the club's fans.
The Reds won their first EPL title in record time on Thursday when Chelsea beat second-placed Manchester City 2-1, to give them an unassailable 23-point lead at the top of the table with seven games to spare.
Liverpool fans gathered outside Anfield to celebrate their title victory, waving flags and setting off flares.
And Klopp spoke of his pleasure of being the club's manager and was full of praise for his players.
"I have no words, it's unbelievable. It's much more than I ever thought would be possible, becoming champion with this club is absolutely incredible," the German told Sky Sports News.
"It was really tense, the 95 or 100 minutes of the City game, as you can imagine. I didn't want to be involved really but obviously as you're watching you are involved.
"It was quite intense. But it was an incredible achievement of my players, what they did over the last two or three years is exceptional and a huge joy for me to coach them."
He added it was a relief because of the three-month interruption (due to the coronavirus lockdown) and nobody knew how it would go on and when they would come back.
"The games are difficult in the Premier League, each game is different so I was really happy last night with the game (the win over Crystal Palace), it gave me 100 percent feeling that we will be fine.
"But tonight I can only say (to the supporters), it's for you, it's for you out there. It's incredible, I hope you stay at home or go in front of your house if you want but do no more and celebrate it.
"It's all here. We are all together in this moment and it's a joy to do it for you, I can tell you."
