Why We Go There
Lake Macquarie is located within the Hunter Valley Region north of Sydney.
It is said that Lake Macquarie is the largest coastal saltwater lake in Australia and is four times the size of Sydney Harbour. You can explore this vast aquatic playground by boat, jet ski, canoe, yacht or houseboat and all you have to do is call us at Around and About Bus Hire & Tours and let us take you there for a day trip lasting with a lifetime of memories.
Lake Macquarie links the lake, beaches and mountains and is surrounded by more than 90 villages, offering great surfing locations and heritage-listed towns throughout the area.
Located in the Hunter Region and only a little over an hour’s drive north from Sydney is where you will discover the natural beauty of Lake Macquarie. This vast blue saltwater expanse is one of the largest lakes in the Southern Hemisphere and at four times the size of Sydney Harbour is perfect for sailing, fishing, swimming, cruising and scuba diving.
Enjoy peaceful strolls around the lake foreshore, or take a swim at one of the many sun-drenched beaches that dot the coastline. From sheltered sandy coves to rock pools and sea caves, the beaches of Lake Macquarie are there to discover and explore.
The main surrounding areas are Charlestown, Morisset, Swansea, Toronto, and Warners Bay all peaceful but thriving lakeside villages that look forward to welcoming you.
