Museum of Art and Culture Lake Macquarie, yapang

Overview

Lake Macquarie City Art Gallery is an exceptional cultural and tourist destination. Beautifully located on the shores of Lake Macquarie.

The Museum of Art and Culture Lake Macquarie, yapang, is located on five verdant hectares on the shores of Australia’s largest coastal saltwater lake. It’s an idyllic backdrop to what is the region’s artistic and cultural hub, which includes an award-winning art museum with mosaic pathways, a sculpture park and a café.

Lake Macquarie is unique among regional galleries due to its location and quality of programming. Touring shows alternate with museum-curated exhibitions featuring nationally significant artists, many of whom share a connection with the Hunter.

Contemporary visual arts, craft and design practice are the main focus of MAC’s exhibitions, as well as a dedicated Aboriginal program under the banner of ‘yapang’ (it means journey/pathway in the Awabakal language).

MAC can be easily reached via the lake foreshore cycleway, the Lake Mac Ferry or by public transport.
