Beautiful Lake Macquarie
Swansea, Murrays Beach and Nords Wharf  … the Gateway to Eastern Lake Macquarie …
Swansea is located at the entrance of Lake Macquarie (the largest salt water coastal lake in the southern hemisphere) and also benefits from being near the coast of the beautiful Pacific Ocean. It is only 30 minutes drive from from Newcastle and only an hour and a half from Sydney, making it a great holiday destination. Murrays Beach is a new lakeside suburb set in a bushland setting on the edge of the Lake and is 5 minutes south of Swansea. It is a Community development with open parkland, a swimming pool, Cafe and Restaurant and is a quiet area away from the hustle and bustle of City living. Nords Wharf, a further five minutes away and named after William Nord, one of the original land owners in the district, who had a large farm and orchard and their wharf was used by the ferries taking miners to Catherine Hill Bay. It was also a popular meeting place for the Aboriginal tribes that lived in the area. It is now a quite lakeside village with a waterfront that boasts deep water frontages which are scarce on the Eastern side of Lake Macquarie  There are many activities to do when staying around Swansea, from  exploring the tiny heritage village of Catherine Hill Bay to wandering through the caves at Caves Beach (patrolled by surf life savers in the warmer months). You  can also take a day trip up to the Watagan Mountains, or to the Hunter Valley Vineyards. The area around Swansea was initially known as "Reid's Mistake". Captain William Reid thought he was entering the mouth of the Hunter River to get coal but instead discovered the mouth of Lake Macquarie . Initially the home to the Awabakal tribe it is now a popular residential and tourist destination. Just inside the lakes' entrance on the southern side of the channel is  Black Ned's Bay, named after the last member of the Awabakal tribe to live in the area. Later the local area became known as Pelican Flat (due to the abundance of Pelicans in the area) but was renamed in 1887. A suburb of Pelican is located just over the Swansea opening bridge. Swansea is surrounded by a number of great swimming and surfing beaches (Caves Beach, Blacksmiths, Catherine Hill Bay)  and of course many lakeside picnic areas. Boating is popular, as well as Scuba diving and of course fishing. Or just sit back and have a waterfront dining experience by the lake.
