Located at the mouth of the lake that connects it to the sea, Swansea is a small city centre with everything you need to enjoy a day out. The Swansea Bridge is the centrepiece of the town, allowing boats in and out of the lake. There is a great cycling path that runs along the foreshore, with scenic views the whole way along perfect for walking or riding a bike. We would recommend enjoying a coffee and breakfast on the lake at Tides Cafe (2 Belmont St, Swansea) or a meal at Seed Cafe (4/204 Pacific Hwy, Swansea). There are also public pools open during the summer season. You can also skydive at Lake Macquarie Airport or enjoy a helicopter joy ride to soak in the amazing views from above (864 Pacific Hwy, Marks Point).
