Newcastle- Perkins Street Stairs

Perkins Street stairs are closed until further notice, please consider using Wolfe Street as a safer route for access between Church and Perkins Street.

Initial results indicate the heritage sandstone wall is in distress and movements are of an unacceptable range to reopen the stairway to the public at this time.

Geotechnical investigation and design are currently being planned and the proposed solution will be submitted to OEH for heritage approval once complete. 

City of Newcastle will make every effort to preserve the structure while ensuring the safety of pedestrians.
