Wallarah National Park conserves coastal land south of Caves Beach, just east of Lake Macquarie. The park is in three sections, on the east and west of the Pacific Highway. It's about 30 kilometres south of Newcastle and 120 kilometres north of Sydney. There are plenty of things to do in the park, including walking, fishing, swimming, surfing. The coastal views are spectacular, and this is a good whale watching spot.
A refreshing holiday alternative offering 50's style cottage comforts in a superb location by the shores of beautiful Lake Macquarie. Cottage Holidays is not a resort and does not feature leather lounges, spas or dishwashers, but instead the peace, privacy and tranquility of a one shop village. Just 90 minutes from Sydney CBD.
