We are looking forward to welcoming fully vaccinated visitors from Regional NSW back to Lake Macquarie from Monday 11 October. Please be aware that there are parts of the Lake Macquarie destination that are subject to different rules as they are part of the Central Coast local government area. If in doubt, please contact the friendly team at the Lake Macquarie Visitor Information Centre for more information (currently operating with temporary changes in opening hours). Please stay up-to-date with all the latest NSW Government COVID-19 rules to ensure you are travelling in Lake Macquarie safely.
