Preparations under way for earthquake commemoration
19th December 2019
Can you believe it's almost 30 years since the Newcastle earthquake?
I know there are many, many Lake Macquarie residents with remarkable stories and memories of that dreadful day.
In preparation of the 30th anniversary commemorations, the Newcastle Herald is holding two photo shoots this Saturday, December 21.
They're looking for people who were there in 1989 to gather for a photo with those who led the rescue and recovery operations.
They'll be meeting outside the old Newcastle Workers Club (now Wests) at 10am, and outside the Kent Hotel at Hamilton at 11am.
