The Don Morris Walk

Don Morris (1930-2010), when Planner at the University of Newcastle (1975-88), was able to preserve the character of the university's bushland campus through careful planning which maximised retention of the existing native vegetation.

The Don Morris Walk at the university commemorates Don's contribution to the campus grounds and provides an opportunity for environmental studies as well as affording a relaxing stroll through a section of truly Australian bushland and wetlands.
