Set on a major road skirting the south-western shore of Lake Macquarie, Morisset is in a central position to explore the sights, sounds and tastes of Australia’s largest salt-water lake. The town has direct access to the lake from the Casuarina Point Reserve on the tip of Morisset Peninsula. The reserve, which looks out over the lake to the Wangi Wangi Peninsula has a boat ramp and swimming pool. Morisset is also within a few minutes of the Sydney and Newcastle Expressway and its rapid transit links to the resort towns and villages of the Central Coast, the splendour and bush walking trails of the Watagan Mountains State Forest and the famed Newcastle surf beaches.
Once prized for the their high quality timbers such as blackbutt, she-oak, tallow and red cedar, the forests of Watagan are now protected and provide enormous pleasure and adventure to dedicated bush-walkers and a tranquil escape for jaded city dwellers. The Watagan forests are prized for their magnificent views, bushwalking trails, picnic and camping grounds and scenic drives.
