Boating Lake Macquarie

How lucky are we to live so close to Lake Macquarie?

When it comes to boating, Lake Mac offers 174km of lakefront, and more than 32km of coastline to explore.

Lake Macquarie is one of Australia’s largest saltwater lakes, there’s so much space to enjoy a wide range of water sports and boating-related activities – that’s for sure.

And what do we love about boating Lake Macquarie? The team at Terrace Boating believes it is the breadth of opportunity and the fact that there really is something for everyone.

The friendly shorelines and sheltered areas are great for water sports – you’ll see plenty of paddlers, waterskiers and wakeboarders.

Fishing is a big drawcard too – the waters of Lake Macquarie are home to green­back tailor, kingfish, small snapper, flathead and whiting, jewfish, and even sand crabs.

Whether you’re sailing or into something with a bit more speed Lake Macquarie is renowned for boating of all kinds with marinas and yacht clubs aplenty.

There are also numerous boat ramps around Lake Macquarie and the local council has put together a great interactive map that locates all of the boat ramps and jetty facilities.
