I'm a freelance writer/photographer/filmmaker living in stunning Lake Macquarie. I am always on the look out for budget things to do for large families.

There are very few things you can do in life that are free, especially when they come with a spectacular 360 degree view of Newcastle City and its never ending coast line. However, the newly constructed stainless steel ANZAC Memorial Walk is definitely one that can tick that box.

The ANZAC Memorial Walk
The Structure


The 4.5 Million dollar, 450 meter, 64 tonne structure features silhouettes of soldiers engraved with around 3859 family names of almost 11,000 'known' Hunter Valley men and women who enlisted in the Australian Imperial Force, Royal Australian Navy, Australian Army Nursing Service and British & Commonwealth forces during the Great war of 1914 1918.

It was officially opened on ANZAC day 2015 which was also the 100th Anniversary of the ANZAC landing at Gallipoli. The Walk is located parallel to Memorial Drive and adds to the existing Bathers way walk. It is open 24/7. The photo opportunities are endless. During the day the views are breathtaking and at night the Walk is romantic and reverent with its soft lighting, city lights and the sounds of the ocean on the seaside.

It is definitely worth seeing, you will not be disappointed.

I agree totally the bridge is a beautiful tribute to the centenary of Anzac day.
I was about to submit a similar article about walking on the bridge on Anzac day.
