Rediscover yourself in this wonderland
Your visitor guide to Lake Macquarie
With an array of things to consider when you decide to retire, location is usually top of the list. Whether you’re an adventure-seeker or enjoy the simple life, Lake Macquarie has something for everyone.
Twice the size of Sydney Harbour and the largest lake in the southern hemisphere, the area is peppered with townships around the lake: from the 32 kilometres of coastline in the east to the Watagan Mountains and rural countryside in the west.
For those looking for adventure, you’ll be spoilt with choice from boating, sailing, fishing and surfing to national park and state forest trails leading to unforgettable scenic lookouts.
Uncover the wonderful history the area has, explore the aquatic wonderland,
indulge in your artistic talents or enjoy quality time with family and grandchildren at the many playgrounds and cafes around the lake.
Lake Macquarie is located with easy access to the beautiful Hunter Valley with its sprawling vineyards, Newcastle’s eclectic boutique stores and thriving CBD, and Sydney is just a scoot down the M1 motorway.
