Nestled on the edge of Lake Macquarie

The centre piece of Lake Macquarie is the lake itself, twice the times larger than Sydney Harbour and almost completely flanked by cycle and walkways. Whether you want to spend your days wetting a line, enjoy a twilight sail or exploring Pulbah Island, the lake has plenty to offer and the views will absolutely take your breath away.

Lake Macquarie is Australia’s largest coastal salt water lagoon. Located in the Hunter Region of New South Wales, it covers an area of 110 square kilometres (42.5 sq mi) and is connected to the Tasman Sea by a short 380m wide channel at Swansea and Lakes Entrance. The bridges over the channel open to allow yachts and larger water craft into and out of the lake.

Lake Macquarie is twice as large as Sydney Harbour and is the largest permanent salt water lake in the Southern Hemisphere. Great for fishing, swimming and boating.


Pulbah Island

A short boat trip away, the Pulbah Island Nature Reserve is a protected 68-hectare (168-acre) nature reserve that is located in the southern part of the lake. Being approximately 1.6 kilometres long the island is, by far, the largest island in Lake Macquarie.


Dora Creek

Located just 8 minutes away, Dora Creek is named for the creek running through its centre and was originally known as Doree Doree in the local Aboriginal language, which means “Creek running into a lake”.

The southern end of the lake provides the habitat for rare birds such as the swift parrot, regent honeyeater and masked owl with osprey also nesting nearby.

There is an interesting geological phenomena at Dora Creek’s connection to the lake.

The banks of the creek have formed into two peninsula jutting out into the lake like a point. Thus the aboriginal name is explained, the creek is literally in a lake – the points are merely the banks of the creek.

The perfect spot for the keen fisherman to launch the boat or simply drop a line.
