Local Insights:
Warners Bay/Lake Macquarie

Lake Macquarie, larger than Sydney Harbour, has 174 kilometres of foreshore providing little sandy lake beaches, hidden coves and secluded bays.

Local Insights Edition 13: Warners Bay/Lake Macquarie

Warners Bay

The amazing suburbs surrounding the lake include Eleebana, Lakelands, Speers Point, Valentine, Warners Bay and Boolaroo. Property types vary incredibly from the typical 3 – 4 bedroom family home to majestic waterfront properties with their own private access to the lakefront, making it a water sports paradise.

Locals also love the fact they can sit down for a coffee at a Warner’s Bay cafe, enjoy a walk or ride along the lakeside pathways, take the kids to one of the many local parks or get out on the water, but also have the convenience of being close to schools and other services.

Buyers in the Lake Macquarie area include families, downsizers and retirees with still some great buys in hidden pockets for first home buyers.
