The largest coastal saltwater lake in Australia, Lake Macquarie is an aquatic playground, perfect for a relaxing holiday. Take your pick of experiences from cruising on the lake, surfing at the beach and bushwalking in the mountains to enjoying great lakeside dining and shopping.

Linking the lake, beaches and mountains are more than 90 villages including Belmont, Blacksmiths and Swansea

Lake Macquarie is blessed with beautiful beaches, sandy inlets and open lake foreshore areas, they are great destinations for water enthusiasts.

Explore the sea caves at low tide, venture out into the open waters with a deep sea fishing adventure or catch a wave at the patrolled beach. If you're feeling energetic, explore beautiful Nine Mile Beach, which starts at Blacksmiths Beach and ends at Redhead Beach.
