The Offshore Superboat Championships return to Lake Macquarie this year, with the Lake hosting the fourth round of the tournament over the 14th and 15th of October.
The Superboat Championships are the highlight of the Lake Mac Big Weekend, which will feature a range of activities around the key vantage points on the Warners Bay foreshore and Marmong Point foreshore reserve. These will include markets, food stalls and entertainment, jetski racing, ‘come and try’ water sports and aerobatic displays from the Matt Hall Racing flying team.
Check back closer to the date for more details on individual events.
Where to view the Superboats
The races will take place at the northern end of the Lake, with the Pit area located at Marmong Point Marina. The recently reinvigorated Warners Bay Foreshore is an ideal area to catch the action, with newly constructed seating and viewing areas including two new plazas, 65 metres of stepped sandstone walls and 30 new park benches.
