A Slice of Paradise at Lake Macquarie

Welcome to Lake Macquarie where the dress code is barefoot and every day feels like a holiday! Located on the coast of NSW, Lake Macquarie is known for being one of Australia’s premier holiday destinations and with the largest saltwater lake in the southern hemisphere, it is the perfect playground for water sports and a relaxed lifestyle.


Hometown Australia is seeing a trend in younger retirees seeking an active and independent retirement-lifestyle and are making the move to the Lake Macquarie Community. “In my experience, I am finding that younger retirees are looking to downsize to live a simpler life. Many are interested in making new friends, feeling supported by a community, and spending less time on home maintenance and more time on doing the things that they enjoy!” said Kerry Starkey, Community Manager at the Lake Macquarie Community.

Enjoying an Active and Independent Lifestyle

The Lake Macquarie Community is a peaceful community that sets the perfect scene for residents to enjoy a carefree lifestyle. Spread across 4 hectares of lush countryside the community is nestled between Lake Macquarie and the Hunter Valley wine region.


Take your time enjoying the morning sunshine with breakfast on your deck followed by a dip in the solar heated pool, a stroll through one of the beautiful gardens, meet up with friends in the clubhouse for a friendly game, or invite family and friends to join you for lunch in the covered BBQ area – perfect for entertaining all year round.

When stepping foot inside the clubhouse, it is hard to recognise if you’re enjoying a sundowner in the Hamptons or, in fact, on the coast of NSW. The clubhouse was re-developed in 2020 to include a library, craft room, community room, and covered alfresco breezeway.


“The area now hosts many wonderful events for the community with residents looking forward to their regular gathering of cards, crafts, and of course, happy hour. Whether it is a birthday or anniversary celebrations, Melbourne Cup or Christmas, all of our events are enjoyed by the community in the fabulous breezeway,” said Kerry.

Enjoying the Prime Location

With only a 90 minute drive from Sydney and 40 minutes away from the Hunter Valley, Lake Macquarie offers the best of both worlds with a close proximity to the city yet a short drive to some of NSW most sought after beaches, vineyards, and restaurants.


“The railway line is only five minutes away and can take you north to Newcastle or south to Sydney via the Hawkesbury River, so there is no need to worry about traffic! It’s always nice to pick up a coffee and jump on the ferry to cruise around the beautiful waterways of Lake Macquarie,” concluded Kerry.


With nature on your doorstep, you will always find something to do. Pack a picnic to enjoy by one of the nearby lakes or lace up your walking shoes for a beautiful walk through the Olney State Forest in the Watagan Mountains. Explore the culinary delights of the Hunter Valley region with award winning vineyards and restaurants a short drive away.
