Newcastle - Perkins Street Stairs

The Perkins Street stairs and retaining wall at the intersection with Church Street, The Hill are currently closed. Please consider using Wolfe Street as a safer route for access between Church and King Street.

The heritage sandstone wall and stairs require rectification works to allow them to be safely reopened to the public. Investigation, monitoring and design are currently being planned and the proposed solution will be submitted to OEH for heritage approval once complete.

Rectification works are planned and budgeted for in the 2020/2021 financial year following heritage approvals.

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