With Watagans Mountains in the distance and Lake Macquarie lapping the shoreline, this gem of a place is as picturesque as they come. Far from a sleepy lakeside town, Warners Bay has a pulse that resonates on and off the land. When the sun is out, Warners Bay really comes into its own – the foreshore walk is a hive of activity with cyclists and runners, parks are brimming with picnickers, and the water is a playground for kayakers, sailors, paddleboarders and jet skiers.
The second largest suburb in the Lake Macquarie region, Warners Bay is a short 20-minute drive to Newcastle City and even less to the beaches and Charlestown Square. The Esplanade is the central hub of this community with cafes, restaurants and speciality stores lining the street. Head inland from the lake and you will be quick to discover the large industrial estate with practical homemaker stores that sit alongside indoor activities, such as ice skating, indoor go-karting and ten pin bowling.
Needless to say, sport is somewhat of a religion around here. The playing fields scattered throughout the suburb are a base for football, AFL and cricket clubs. Ice hockey has a strong presence, as does club swimming. Warners Bay caters equally to growing families and those who crave a slower pace, which is why this foreshore suburb has long been a favourite destination for Novocastrians.
