Description

Generations of Novocastrians experienced the impact of war on their lives and their city. Explore Newcastle through the conflicts that have shaped its landscape and character. Meet locals that left Newcastle to participate in some of the most devastating wars in history. You’ll walk in their footsteps, and visit places dedicated to their memory. You may choose to extend your journey to take in the ANZAC Memorial Walk that opened in April 2015, the 100 year anniversary of the ANZAC landing on the Gallipoli peninsular. This walk commemorates those from Newcastle and the Hunter region who enlisted for service in WWI. ANZAC Memorial Walk commemorates those who enlisted in World War I and features the family names of men and women from Newcastle and the Hunter Valley who served during the War. It also recognises the contribution that BHP Billiton made to the war effort in supplying steel rail, ship plate and munitions.
