Museum of Art and Culture Lake Macquarie (MAC)


Located on the shores of Australia’s largest coastal saltwater lake, the leafy grounds include the award-winning art museum with a sculpture park, mosaic pathways and cafe. Lake Macquarie is unique among regional galleries due to its location and quality of programming. Touring shows alternate with museum-curated exhibitions featuring nationally significant artists, many of whom share a connection with the Hunter.

Contemporary visual arts, craft and design practice is the main focus of our exhibitions, and respectful Aboriginal projects under the banner of Yapang are a strong component of the program.

MAC can be easily reached via the lake foreshore cycleway, the water or by public transport.
