Newcastle Memorial Walk

Newcastle Memorial Walk is located on Strzelecki Headland and spans 450 metres along the cliff top towards Bar Beach.

The structure cost $4.5 million to build and over 64 tonnes of steel was used in its construction.

The Memorial Walk was built to commemorate the centenary of ANZAC and the commencement of BHP’s steel making in Newcastle.

The walk features steel silhouettes of soldiers inscribed with thousands of family names of Hunter men and women who served in World War I.

Along the walk there are many stories to read about Naval, Military, Aviation and Nursing Services during WWI.

This Walk provides stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and Newcastle’s beautiful coastline as well as views of the City of Newcastle and beyond.

The views looking back towards the City of Newcastle and the harbour.

The Memorial Walk is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  At night time the path is lit but it is advised to be mindful of your safety.  The Walk is accessible from Strzelecki Lookout car park or Bar Beach car park.

We will be back to do a sunrise walk one day soon!!
