Lakeshores have now expanded their range of holiday homes and cottages to include the historic township of Catherine Hill Bay.

60 minutes north of Hornsby, south of Swansea and Caves Beach, Catherine Hill Bay is a coal mining village, dating from the late 1800’s, nestled into the hills overlooking the Pacific Ocean and just a stones throw from Lake Macquarie. This is the perfect place to escape from the cut and thrust of city life, to simply relax and unwind.

Whether you enjoy bushwalking, surfing, swimming, beach / lake / rock fishing, strolling along a deserted beach or just getting stuck into a good book, this is the place for you.

The only commercial establishment in Catherine Hill Bay village is the original, weatherboard pub, affectionately known as “The Catho”. On Friday and Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoon it hosts a variety of bands to entertain you while you enjoy some pub grub or just an ice cold drink.

The Beach is famous for its surf and is patrolled during the Summer months by the dedicated local Life Saving Club.

You will find a late closing Supermarket at Swansea which is 10 minutes drive away, as well as Banks, small shops, video hire, Clubs, Restaurants and Take-Aways.
