"Safe and local for tour kids to grow up."

I've lived in Belmont for 10yrs I never want to leave, everything is walking distance where I am and my kids are getting the up bringing I want! I can Trust them to walk to and from school safely, eldest son rides around the lake and child friendly hotspots!! Just a stones throw away from both the lake and beach. Take the nature walk along the fernleigh track. It's just a fatastic place with a great community. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else!!
Pros
  • friendly
  • Extremely affordable and safe.
  • Great schools
  • Lake & Beach
Cons
  • nothing! Its all good.

"Perfect place to raise a family."

This is my spiritual home. I was raised here and sadly; took it for granted. It's got everything! Lake, beach, great schools, shopping. Major shopping centre only 15 mins away in Charlestown.

We never had a problem with crime and would happily and safely play in our cul-de-sac street from sunrise to sunset with the local kids. Belmont has a very strong sense of community and with a local Languages High School that also has a very passionate sports programme; we've seen some great sportsmen emerge such as Paul "Chief" Harrogan and Brett Kimmorley.

Extremely affordable living, and fresh ocean/lake air make it the perfect place to raise a family!

I moved to Sydney in my early twenties to start a career in Finance/Insurance and after 5 years with a fantastic Australia-wide company (and still there); can't wait to relocate back to Lake Macquarie and stay with the same company and raise a family. Getting married in the gorgeous suburb of Caves Beach which is only 10 mins from here... simply amazing area.
Pros
  • Great schools
  • Lake & Beach
  • Extremely affordable and safe.
Cons
  • nothing! Its all good.
