Booragul and Marmong Point

Immerse in the arts and natural beauty

An integral part of the Lake Arts Precinct, alongside neighbouring Speers Point and Warners Bay at the northern end of the lake, Booragul is home to the award-winning Museum of Arts and Culture yapang. Fire your imagination as you view the waterfront art museum’s exhibitions of contemporary art, explore its leafy lakeside Sculpture Park and browse the handcrafted jewellery and homewares at its Shop MAC gift store.

Lady Mac with Lake Macquarie Cruises. Explore the lake’s hidden waterways on its Loop the Lake cruise, or watch the sky darken on a Sunset Dinner sailing.
