Are you and your family coming to Lake Macquarie for your next holiday? If so, there are plenty of things that you can do close to your holiday accommodation. Lake Macquarie is one of Australia’s hidden treasures as it’s only 90 minutes from Sydney. It also has something for everyone in the family to do whether you are into doing things outdoors, learning history or just simply relaxing. We know of a few things that you and your family can do while you holiday with us at Lake Macquarie. Let’s take a look at a few of them below.
Going on a holiday is always fun, but when you get to visit the beach it makes it even more fun. When you and your family head to Blacksmiths Beach it’s a wonderful 9 mile stretch of coastline that many families love to visit. This beach is also patrolled during the warmer months which makes it the perfect family beach to take the kids to visit. Pack your day bags with towels, sunscreen and a picnic lunch for you to sit back, relax and soak up the sun.
Lake Macquarie Variety Playground
If you are looking for a good playground to take the kids to while you are on holiday, then we suggest heading over to Lake Macquarie Variety Playground at Speers Point Park. The park offers kids of all ages a play space that includes a bike circuit, swings, a giant spiral slide, a wheelchair accessible play boat and 12m climbing towers. Bring a picnic lunch or grab a bite to eat at the cafe adjacent to the playground.
Australian Reptile Park
Going to any park while you are on holiday can be fun but visiting the Australian Reptile Park can be more exciting. Established in 1948 by naturalist Eric Worrell, you can see reptiles and spiders close up. Take a walk with a giant Galapagos tortoise, meet the Tasmanian devil along with other Australian native animals and have your photo taken with a koala or python. This can be a wonderful day for learning all about the animals and learning how to create lifesaving snake and spider anti-venoms. Don’t miss this one as you will remember for years to come.
Watagans Mountain National Park
If you and your family are looking for a little more fun, then lace up your bushwalking shoes and explore the Watagans National Park. You will be able to see Gap Creek Falls which happens to be one of the most picturesque waterfalls in the region. The parks red cedars and Illawarra flame trees create a cool, rainforest below that is complete with strewn boulders and moss-covered walls. This can be a way to connect with the family perhaps device free for a day while you enjoy what nature has to offer you.
