Coming from Sydney with little kids Lake Macquarie is a perfect place. Travel time for less than 2hours is a definitely a plus. Fishing, picnic area, local hotels, cafes, shopping centres, playgrounds. Countless beautiful spots, jetties and foreshore surrounding the beautiful lake. Definitely one our fave place in nsw. Plus beach on the other side- caves beach and blacksmith beach - awesome!

Lake Macquarie is the largest salt water lake in Australia. It’s where I have lived for the last 42years. I have traveled to 30 countries and I still believe I live in the most beautiful place in the world. You can fish,sail all types of boating sports. It’s also great for Swimming. There are many many places around the lake for picnics etc. Speers Point Park has one of the best children’s play ground. The park has a enclosed dog park , footpaths for walking bike riding. Come for a visit you will fall in love with it too.

We were visiting the area as we were doing a tandem skydive and due to us having some spare time whilst the others in our group were still doing jumps we decided to visit Naru Beach. The beach was stunning and the water quality at Lake Macquarie was excellent, it was super clear and I just wish I would have had more time to go in for a swim and do some snorkelling. On the way to the beach from the skydive centre make sure to buy a slushy for $2 from the family run slushy stand on the residential street, I had the blue slushy and I would say it’s probably the best I’ve ever had! I highly recommend a visit to Naru Beach especially to those doing the Skydive at the nearby Skydive Newcastle.
