NEWCASTLE CITY COUNCIL
AWABAKAL, MEREWETHER NSW
The Bathers Way is a scenic promenade along the coastline that links Newcastle’s beaches. It is a generous shared pathway with spectacular views, rest areas with seating, shade and cafes.
Moir Landscape Architecture were engaged by Newcastle City Council to provide concept design, tender documentation and construction documentation for Stage 3B of the Bathers Way redevelopment project.
The project is located along the beachfront walkway at Merewether Surf Club. The design consists of a curved terraced platform that provides seating and interactive spaces that reduce conflict between cafe patrons and walkers through a narrow and a highly utilised section of the Bathers Way.
The area is now a key destination in Newcastle as the combination of a vibrant atmosphere, coffee and ample seating with views to the waves and north up to Bar Beach, have proven to be a significant draw card.
