“Beautiful large lake”
Review of Lake Macquarie

Lake Macquarie
Attraction details
Reviewed May 31, 2014

Yes it is a beautiful large lake and people are able to access most shore areas around it. There is heaps to do - swimming, water skiing, fishing, cruises of the lake, the fantastic childrens park at Speers Point and once I even saw a water plane pulled up to the jetty at Warners Bay. There have been sightings of sharks in the lake and I have even spotted some dolphins whilst walking around the lake

Lake Macquarie is a beautiful salt-water Lake, filled with fish, and you can see the odd dolphin, turtle and even though its rare you could even see a shark.

Plenty of walk ways and cycle ways surround most of the lake. Take a walk anywhere around the lake, any time of year. It's always stunning. You can swim anywhere in the lake safely, but be cautious as there can be Razor Fish, so it is recommended that you wear Aqua Shoes.

Lots of places to hire a kayak, or houseboat, or rent a house on or near the lake.

Went to Morriset Hospital for sightseeing and enjoyed patting kangaroos and marvelling the views of the lake.
