Inner Newcastle Heritage Walk
NEWCASTLE, THE CITY SHAPED BY ENGINEERING
Newcastle as we now know it was shaped by the mining, transporting and loading of coal, commencing with the first convict settlement in 1804. Engineers Australia, through its group Engineering Heritage Australia (Newcastle), has been active in recording, researching and conserving the engineering heritage of Newcastle to allow engineers and the community to appreciate the built environment in which we live and work.
The link below sets out some of the heritage in an easy walk around the central business district.
