To all interested in our regionís heritage,
Newcastle Industrial Heritage Association is pleased to offer personalised guided tours of the iconic sculpture ĎThe Muster Pointí.
This house-size industrial artwork was constructed as a collaboration by famous Newcastle sculptor Julie Squires and steelworkers in 1999, to mark the closure of the steelworks.
The whole structure, inside and out, has many stories to tell about the history of steelmaking at Newcastle.

Well-known retired steelworker Aubrey Brooks conducts intimate, heartfelt journeys around and within the walls of this unique place.

If you know any small group that would like to soak up some of the emotion of life at the steelworks, contact Aubrey to make a booking.

Tours are free, but Aubrey is willing to accept donations towards the work done by NIHA members, and he has copies of the DVD of the steelworks and books on history of the steelworks for sale.

Email obisan@hunterlink.net.au or call 49845264 for more details.
