Lake Macquarie

Love the lake!

Blessed with natural beauty, Lake Macquarie offers 174kms of lake foreshore & there is plenty to see & do from the water’s edge.

Visit Lake Macquarie for your next holiday or short break

Just 1.5 hours north of Sydney on the north coast of NSW, is the stunning destination of Lake Macquarie.  Did you know it is the largest permanent coastal saltwater lake in the southern hemisphere at twice the size of Sydney Harbour?

Holidaying in the region is easy as there are community parks and reserves, bush walking tracks, flora and fauna trails, shopping precincts, art galleries and town centres spread around the city’s lake foreshore. For those with a mountain trip in mind, head west and explore the Watagan Mountains.

Fall in love with the tranquil lake, cruising, fishing and snorkelling, four beautiful patrolled beaches, quaint waterfront towns and untouched National Parks.
