Welcome to Lakeside @ Summerland Point, an absolute waterfront gem set amongst landscaped gardens & lawns, only 1 hour north of Wahroonga on Lake Macquarie.
There is no public access to the waterfront, it's all yours.
Stunning views of the lake greet you as you move through the open plan living area to the north facing covered balcony with gas BBQ & table setting.

Enjoy fishing, water skiing or cruising around this beautiful lake. Boats can be hired at Cams Wharf.

Children’s playgrounds are located in Summerland Point near the boat ramp & at Sandy Beach & in Gwandalan Lioness Park Playground .
Walk along the Heritage walk to Gwandalan.
Catherine Hill Bay, our favourite local beach, is also popular with surfers. There are 3 parking areas – first at the Surf Club, then just before the hill & lastly beside the cemetery. The northern end is our preferred end. It is ever changing with the tide & weather & we enjoy swimming there. There is also a rock platform to explore. Take thongs or similar as it is rough underfoot. The southern end is patrolled by life savers in season. The heritage listed Catho Pub is a popular place to visit. They have live music on Sunday afternoons plus Saturday afternoons in summer.
Munmorah State Conservation Area, park entry fees apply. Frazer Beach is another favourite beach, patrolled in season & we love walking along the rocks to Gravelly Beach ideally at a lowish tide, again take thongs. The view from Wybung Head is spectacular. There is also nudist Birdie Beach. .
Budgewoi Beach, encompassing also Birdie Beach to the north & Lakes Beach to the south- patrolled, is a really long beach that is lovely to stroll along.
