On the windswept bridge stands a line of soldiers in profile. The sea that they crossed and were never to return to their homeland stretches out for eternity. Names are etched along the walk of the fallen heroes. Words are not needed

I'm a bit bias regarding this walk, my two great uncles appear on the walk as they both fort at Gallipoli. (Shearman) But the walk itself is fantastic, what a view, what great exercise. If you walk in the mornings you will see dolphins and...More

The Memorial Walk itself is not very long but it joins on to a longer track along the coast. There is a small parking area at the Northern end of the walk which makes it much easier to access the walk without having to climb...More

Fantastic walk, but not long enough. You really need to walk around the house at the end of the walk and extend it past the Shepherd's Fort and the bogey hole on onto Newcastle beach. If you want more of a challenge try jogging it.

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 😊
