On the eastern shore of beautiful Lake Macquarie, Belmont has range of delicious waterfront restaurants and the Belmont Bay foreshore is popular for family picnics, with barbecue facilities and a playground for the kids. Lake Macquarie Yacht Club is here, too.

Waterside accommodation options include motels, cottages and a holiday park. You’ll find plenty of water sports to enjoy, from sailing and surfing to fishing and kayaking. Nestled between the lake and the ocean is Belmont Golf Club, an 18-hole championship links course with spectacular views.

Croudace Bay - Lake Macquarie Area

In Belmont Wetlands are walking and cycling trails such as Fernleigh track, a sealed path shared by walkers and cyclists. Home to more than 100 bird species, the wetlands are great for birdwatching and four-wheel-drive vehicles are permitted in some areas, while 9 Mile Beach is ideal for fishing.

At Belmont Airport, thrill-seekers can board a plane for tandem skydiving with Skydive Newcastle above the magnificent lake. For the perfect family night out during the summer school holidays, take the kids to Lake Macquarie Carnival for lots of amusement rides and tasty treats.
