I never get tired of the magnificent colours of Lake Macquarie, especially at sunset. This one was taken from Warners Bay foreshore, a spot where you can sit and unwind at the end of the day and watch this magic unfold.
Lake Macquarie is situated just an hour and a half from Sydney and is our best kept secret. Bordering the city of Newcastle, few realise it is its own city and has its own unique lifestyle. The lake itself is the largest coastal saltwater lake in Australia, over four times the size of Sydney Harbour and is 24 km long and has 174 km of foreshore, with many beautiful bays and beaches.
The eastern side of Lake Macquarie borders the Pacific Ocean with it’s long sandy beaches. On the western side Lake Macquarie adjoins the Watagan Mountains with its beautiful forest drives, waterfalls and picnic areas.
I have had the priviledge of living on the lake for many years and take full advantage of what the beaches and the mountains and the lifestyle it provides. I never tire of its beauty, the many moods, whether it be calm or wild.
