Places nearby Swansea


Swansea lies at the ocean entrance to Lake Macquarie, Australia's largest coastal saltwater lake. The lake, four times the size of Sydney Harbour, is an aquatic playground, popular for all types of water activites, including fishing, sailing, water skiing and kayaking.

Despite its proximity to Newcastle, Swansea retains its own identity. There are some good surfing beaches nearby, including Caves Beach and Blacksmiths Beach. On the edge of the town there is a lookout which has tremendous 360 degree views of the area. Boats can be hired along the lakeshore, or there are charter boats and cruises of the lake. There is a good dive site at Swansea Bridge, where remains of the old bridge form a haven for various aquatic creatures.
