The origins of the Adamstown Pudding Kitchen date back to 1971, when a church member turned to her grandmother’s pudding recipe to make a dessert for a church fundraiser, in thankfulness for her brother returning safely from the Vietnam War. This original good deed has blossomed into a commercial kitchen now producing scrumptous gourmet puddings and sauces. Intent on returning good to the community the pudding kitchen operates as a not for profit organisation who support a range of welfare and community programs in Newcastle, Australia and overseas. Take a kitchen tour including a look at the old coppers, meet the volunteers and of course enjoy a taste of the puddings with tea. You'll uncover a rich history and have the opportunity to make a purchase or two.
Walk the pudding off at Strzelecki and the look-out point location for ‘Newcastle Anzac Memorial Walk' one of the most spectacular coastal walks in Australia. The area was built to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the ANZAC landing at Gallipoli in 1915 and the commencement of steel making in Newcastle; it acts as a magnificent memorial to the men and women of the Hunter who served their community and their country. Take the opportunity for a photo or two, breath in the sea air and stroll along a section of the walkway before heading back to the pier.
