Newcastle’s Memorial Walk has a personal connection for thousands of locals and is set to become one of the most spectacular coastal walks in Australia. Built to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the ANZAC landing at Gallipoli in 1915 and the commencement of steel making in Newcastle. The structure is a 450 meter long cliff top walkway that links Newcastle’s Strzelecki Lookout to Bar Beach. Built with 64 tonnes of stainless steel, the walkway winds its way around the cliff edge and offers unsurpassed views of the coastline, city and up into the Hunter Valley. The walk features a 160 metre cliff top bridge adorned with steel silhouettes of soldiers inscribed with close to 4,000 family names of almost 11,000 known Hunter Valley men and women who enlisted during World War I. It also links to Council’s Bathers Way promenade development, a six kilometre coastal walk linking Newcastle’s beaches and stretching from Merewether Ocean Baths to Nobbys Beach.
