Take a weekend getaway to Lake Macquarie

For a weekend of thrills and chills, Mike explored Lake Macquarie. Less than two hours north of Sydney, it’s a magnificent waterway–twice the size of Sydney Harbour with boatloads to do.

For thrills… buckle in with Jet Buzz for a heart-pumping jet boat ride around the lake – 360s and nosedives are on the agenda.

For chills… step into a kayak or onto a stand-up paddle board. There are fishing boats for hire or there’s always time to relax on the waterfront with a lakeside massage.

It’s all at Rafferty’s Resort in the tiny village of Cams Wharf–a favourite retreat for couples and families for more than 20 years.

And you’ll love the brand new restaurant, where Ross (the head chef) is doing delicious things with the local produce. Yum!
