Lake Macquarie is 7 times the size of sydney harbour.
It is worth the trip (2 hours from sydney)
Accommodation is not easy to get near the lake, but the b & bs are good if you like that.
If you are after a peaceful holdiay, this is the place.
About 40 minutes from Newcastle, 1 hr from Nelson Bay and 1 hour from the Hunter Vineyards, so it is a good base.
