There is a summer water wonderland waiting in Lake Macquarie

December 19, 2020 Visit Oceania No Comments

Up in Lake Macquarie they say that summer is calling and whether your preference is sun, sand, sea or surf, that Lake Macquarie is the perfect destination to plan your next getaway. From family-friendly beaches, sea caves and rock pools, to surf breaks, snorkelling spots, diving locations and kayaking routes, Lake Macquarie’s 30+ kilometres of unspoilt coastline are a water lover’s utopia.

The sunny region boasts a raft of beautiful beaches, many of which are patrolled during the summer months, with top picks including:

Blacksmiths Beach

Blacksmiths Beach is one of the area’s top swim spots, protected by a break wall, with Grannies Pool inlet nearby, it provides the perfect location for splashing around with toddlers.

Caves Beach

An amazing family beach with sea caves and rock pools to explore at low tide, The famous Caves Beach is a must-visit when in Lake Macquarie!

Catherine Hill Bay

Set on the shores of a picturesque historical mining village, Catherine Hill Bay is a great spot for snorkelling and diving to view local shipwrecks, as well as offering some amazing surf breaks.

Redhead Beach

Redhead Beach is shadowed by amazing red cliffs and sports an iconic wooden lifeguard’s tower, a perfect spot for swimming, surfing, fishing, or simply marvelling at the view.

While Lake Macquarie’s beaches offer amazing swim spots, so too does the Lake itself, with its secluded sandy inlets discovered by boat, which sun-chasing holiday makers can hire from Lake Macquarie Watersports.

If kayaking is more your style, Lake Macquarie Watersports offers kayak and stand up paddle boarding (SUP) hire too. On the lake, you can enjoy one of many kayaking routes – from Dora Creek to Swinging Bridge and Speers Point to Barnsley Weir – there are a variety of courses to try from easy to advanced.

For thrill seekers after something fast paced, JetBuzz is a must, located at Cams Wharf, JetBuzz provides an action-adventure jet boat thrill ride for the whole family. Choose from a 25-minute ride across the lake as you stomach a heart stopping combination of high-speed slides and turns as well as JetBuzz’s famous 360° spins, power brake stops and fish tails, or, try the one hour ‘Ocean Extreme’, where you cross the bar and head into the ocean for an adventure before exploring the surf at Blacksmiths Beach or Caves Beach.

After a long day on the water, Lake Macquarie offers a wide variety of accommodation options (including some with lake access for small boats), as well as restaurants and pubs with character where you can relax and unwind, with Lake Macquarie the ultimate summer destination just 90 minutes from Sydney, perfect for daytrips and weekend getaways.
