The ANZAC Memorial Walk is a stunning 450 metre tribute to the region's ANZAC's and the city's steel making heritage. The ANZAC Memorial Walk links the Bathers Way, a six metre walking track that hugs the coastline, and is popular with active locals looking for fresh air.
The Walk was built to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the ANZAC landing at Gallipoli in 1915 and the commencement of steel making in Newcastle; it acts as a magnificent memorial to the men and women of the Hunter who served their community and their country.
The Walk is located above Memorial Drive The Hill, on Strzelecki Headland (between Bar Beach and King Edward Park).
Visitors can park at the top of the hill, or at Bar Beach car park and enjoy an invigorating walk to the attraction.
