Water sports

Glide across Lake Macquarie’s sheltered bays on a stand-up paddleboard or venture into the bays and creeks feeding into the lake on a kayak. You can hire a SUP or kayak from Lake Mac Watersports at Cams Wharf and Kraken Boat Hire, or hire or a paddleboard or wind-surfing set-up from Kite and SUP, which also offers SUP lessons, at Warners Bay.

Book free Kayaks and SUP's at Trinity Point Marina or enjoy a water activity like no other with the eFoil Fliteboard experience.

Bring your board and take on the swell at surf beaches along the coast, or hone your technique with surfing lessons with Newcastle Surf School or Women Soulful Surf, which both teach at Caves Beach and Blacksmiths Beach.
