Overview

Highlights

The Newcastle Memorial Walk was opened in 2015 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the ANZAC landing in Gallipoli. As well as honouring the sacrifices made by Australian soldiers during World War I, this date also marks the commencement of steel making in Newcastle; the ANZAC memorial walk was built using 64 tonnes of stainless steel for this very reason. The walkway is also adorned with steel silhouettes of soldiers, as well as the names of almost 11,000 Hunter Valley men and women who enlisted to serve during World War I.

The Newcastle Memorial Walk consists of two sections: the first is a 160-metre-long bridge that starts at Strzelecki Lookout and leads to another stunning viewing platform. The second section is a stairway that connects the memorial walk to Bathers Way, a six-kilometre coastal walk from Nobbys Beach down to Merewether Beach.

With stunning cliff-top views and an important message for younger generations, this memorial walk is one of Newcastle’s biggest recent developments. With lights illuminating the path after dark, visitors are welcome 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
