Swansea

For a holiday by a beautiful lake and a sparkling ocean, Swansea is a popular choice. The town is on a narrow strip of land between Lake Macquarie and the Pacific Ocean. Enjoy gorgeous beaches, sandy inlets, calm lake waters and ocean waves, and enchanting Wallarah National Park.

You’ll find plenty of waterfront accommodation options in and around Swansea to suit various budgets, from luxury resorts and hotels to holiday homes and cottages and holiday parks. Choose from a range of restaurants too, with some offering spectacular ocean or lake views.

Fishing from Sand Islands, Swansea Channel, Lake Macquarie

Swansea is close to the soft sands of Blacksmiths, Caves and Catherine Hill Bay beaches. Blacksmiths is popular with families. Explore sea caves at low tide at Caves Beach, which also has picnic and barbecue facilities. Snorkellers and divers will be delighted with the shipwrecks in Catherine Hill Bay.

A great spot for rock fishing is at Pinny Beach in the National Park. The Coastal walking track is a great way to experience the beauty of Wallarah or explore forest trails on a mountain bike. For high-speed thrills, you can ride on a jet boat on the lake or in the ocean with JetBuzz Watersports.
