Silverchair bassist Chris Joannou has made a big move north of the band’s longtime home Newcastle.


Chris Joannou, who was the bassist for the band Silverchair, has sold his family home in Carrington in the Newcastle district for $1.65 million.

He’s off to Coffs Harbour to be closer to his wife Karissa’s family.

The property sold through Harcourts Newcastle agent Joel Soldado who had $1.5 million plus hopes.

It has been their three-bedroom home since paying $671,000 in 2014.

It was once owned by the Newcastle Port Authority.

The home was renovated shortly before its 2014 sale, and comes with approval for a pool and accommodation above its double garage.

Silverchair back in the day.


It was 1994 when the trio of teenage Novocastrians, known then as the Innocent Criminals won a competition on SBS TV’s Nomad program by sending in their melodic grunge demo tape.

Silverchair’s singer Daniel Johns kicked off his property purchases with a $360,000 Merewether house in 1996.

Joannou will still visit Newcastle, where he oversees venues including the Criterion Hotel and Flotilla.
