    Contributed by:

    GeneralOn 17 August members of the Fortress Newcastle team conducted the first field trip to remnant sites in the region of military installations of FORTRESS NEWCASTLE. This consisted of an inspection of the 131 Radar Station at Ash Island, followed by a visit to Fighterworld at Williamtown, the site of the RAAF Air Force Base. More field trips to all the remaining sites are planned for the near future. Research and information gathering on all Civil and Military activities is progressing well.

    Contributed by: bobcook

    30 September 2019 was an important day in the Newcastle Steelmaking history.
    It was commemorated by two open days at the site. Sunday 29th and Monday 30th September saw hundreds of past workers and their families visit Delprat's Cottage, the Muster Point sculpture and the Steelworkers memorial. Closure Manager Lance Hockridge returned to cut a commemorative cake to recognise the occasion. It was good to see so many past faces.

    VISIT TO FORT WALLACE  View Printable Version  
    Saturday, November 30 2019 @ 01:19 PM
    Contributed by: bobcook

    An important first step in NIHA's new project - FORTRESS NEWCASTLE, was to visit another of the unused military sites from WW11.
    Fort Wallace will eventually become open to the public and will make an exciting stopover on the 'Fortress Newcastle Trail'.
    We will soon start featuring some of the amazing stories of how the 'Newcastle Industrial Hub', protected by 'Fortress Newcastle', was such a critical part of the war effort to save Australia.

    'BHP Newcastle - A City within a City' was produced by local filmmakers Glenn Dormand and Tony Whittaker, the 46 minute video comprises the voices of 12 former employees.
    It is a strong personal story of life at the steelworks.

All of the running gear is now onsite to allow the machinery to be installed. The Genset, blackwater tanks and fuel tanks must go in first since the only access is through the engine room. 
We need more technical volunteers -
