One of the most scenic walks I have ever had the pleasure of doing. The history lesson along the way is well worth the read.

An exhilarating walk to rest on top of Newcastle and walk slowly looking for a family members name on the soldiers sculpture. An amazing experience a must do.

Went on a very blustery Saturday morning. Spectacular views and poignant tributes. Highly recommend.... even with moody teenagers!

Great view, lovely walk but very disappointed that you aren't allowed to take dogs. I enjoy regularly walking my dog along the stretch of coastline but because there's no dog signs I have to miss out and walk up along the road.

Whale watching, rock fisher people watching, surfer watching and beach watching; it has heaps to see. And then there is the view of the city. A nice long and hilly walk to keep you fit too. A must to do.

This 450 metre walk is a must for anyone visiting Newcastle! Views are 360 degrees! The beach and ocean views are so beautiful. Some parking available at north end! Great photo opportunities. A great tribute to those who served our country.

This walk showcases the picturesque coastline south of Newcastle CBD and acts as a memorial to all the soldiers recruited from the Hunter who died in World War 1. There are plaques to describe some of the battles and the history of how the walk...More

Not long about 500m but it links the coast walk from Newcastle beach up the hill and Bar beach... it's stunning and there's lots of information and art work so it's really engaging

I wouldn’t recommend it in winter when it’s cold but otherwise nonissue if it’s windy as very safe. You may also get a chance to see the hang gliders launching off the top which is great to see 😊
