"Our little secret!!"

A gorgeous little town at the southern end of Lake Macquarie. Surrounded by water MP comes to a point that has swimming baths, boat ramp, barbecues and picnic facilities. The local school is fantastic and encourages community involvement. Lots of other activities such as belly dancing, scouts, CWA, rural fire service, playgroup and fitness classes for all ages. The Tidy Towns group do a fantastic job and have made massive improvements over the past few years. There is a waterfront caravan park, bike path, skate park, tennis and basketball courts. Possums, pelicans, galas and lorikeets are common, as are kangaroos.
Fantastic beached are ten minutes away, as are two decent shopping centres. Westfield is twenty minutes away.
So where the bloody hell are you??
Pros
  • Very safe with low crime rate
  • Community focussed
  • No traffic lights!!
Cons
  • Relying on public transport if you don't drive

"Dont tell anyone."

As title says.

Unfortunately we are having to share this Jewel by the lake with other.

Located on the southern most part of Lake Macquarie.
MP is on a peninsula so have no through traffic to worry about.
Tell no one and keep it quiet.
Cons
  • Getting to many visitors/tourists.
