A GUIDE TO HELP YOU IN YOUR SEARCH FOR A PLACE TO LIVE, OR INVEST, IN NEWCASTLE, LAKE MACQUARIE OR MAITLAND

The waterfront suburb of Warners Bay is just 15 kilometres from the Newcastle CBD, on the eastern side of Lake Macquarie, the largest permanent salt water lake in the southern hemisphere.

It neighbours Boolaroo and Eleebana, Cardiff South, Macquarie Hills, Hillsborough and Mount Hutton.

Twice as large as Sydney Harbour, the colloquially known “Lake Mac” is a hive of activity for boaters, water skiers, stand up paddle boarders and rowers. Its indigenous name Awaba means “plain surface”, which perfectly sums up the lake.

Why rent in Warners Bay?

The lake views tends to attract a lot of retirees to Warners Bay, but the variety of shops and extracurricular activities also makes it an attractive place for people with children. The paved walking track along the waterfront, the large football oval and the sheer number of gyms provide a place for those seeking a healthy lifestyle.

The lakefront esplanade features cafés, restaurants and boutiques as well as essentials like banks, bakeries and butchers. The area includes many family-run businesses and the esplanade is a hotspot for local cyclists to stop and have their morning coffee.

Hunter Ice Skating Rink, located within Warners Bay’s industrial complex, is Newcastle’s only indoor ice skating rink. While it’s a popular spot for children during the school holidays, it’s also a serious ice hockey stadium and home to three-time Australian Ice Hockey League champions Newcastle North Stars.

Warners Bay has three primary schools: Warners Bay Public, Biddabah Public and St Mary’s Primary. Warners Bay High is the only high school within the suburb.

Much of Warners Bay consists of family homes, but new development in the area is seeing the rise of apartment buildings, which have attracted young professionals. Warners Bay has a mix of old and new houses, and plans to expand the shopping precinct in the area are sure to attract more people.
