Adventures in Lake Macquarie

Lake Macquarie is the place for adventure!

It's the Southern Hemisphere's largest coastal lake and it's surrounded by stunning beaches and natural bushland. It's also just up the road from Newcastle, the second biggest city in NSW and home to exciting events such as Surfest and Repco Newcastle 500 Super Cars Championship.

It's rugged coastal landscape is the perfect place for adventure and exploration! Just off the coast is the "Humpback Highway", where whales can be seen as they migrate north to warmer waters from June-November every year. They can be seen from many vantage points along the coast line, or you can take a tour with a whale watching operator such as CoastXP who offer tours leaving from Honeysuckle.

All year round they also have a bunch more tours to choose from, such as dolphin watching, hiking treks and even scenic flights. CoastXP can take you to some of the most remote and little known secret hideaways around the lake that will make you feel like you're much further away from the city than you really are!

For the super brave there is a sky diving academy located in Marks Point just 20 minutes from Charlestown. Find out more about their packages here.

If you're looking for an adventure to suit the whole family then Treetop Adventure Park have lots to do at both the Newcastle and Central Coast locations. They've got courses for everyone, from toddlers to grown-ups!
