  • Acknowledging Earl Grey's passing of the Great Reform Act of 1832 - on occasion you can access the viewing platform - a miraculous sight. 
  • The location of this monument is perfect. It is located just outside the Eldon garden mall and Grey street. You can eat, take a break or do some shopping if you are around. 
  • If you are on Grey Street then you are on tone of the main streets in Newcastle. If you head up the hill then you will be in the main shopping area with some decent shops (if you want standard shops t...  more »

  • Its a meeting place. The hustle and bustle of daily activity is truely a great experience. It changes from day to day with farmers markets to music events. Monument Metro is here so its so easy getting to and from other parts. The Monument itself is a sight to see. I sed to climb up all the internal tower stairs as a child. I wonder if it ever opens to the public now.
  • A truly iconic landmark in the city which is really useful considering it has one of the city's most important transport hubs underneath it in Monument Metro Station. If you get the opportunity to go to the top the view is amazing. Unfortunately, the viewing platform isn't regularly open to the public.
  • A great meeting point with quick access to the metro as well as a nice stroll to many activities if you don't want to look at the monument itself.
  • Very amazing monument which truly dominates the skyline. I can't stop looking up at it. It is very useful if you are looking to get on the metro as the station is below it.
  • Awesome Monument that's massive in size and surrounded by people and awesome stores and food places. Also pretty good for Pokemon Go. Also, check out the St George statue! =)
