It is school holiday time, and if you have decided to holiday at home in Lake Mac this year, let me congratulate you on an excellent decision.
Autumn is a wonderful time to spend in our City, with the still-warm-but-not searingly-hot weather perfect for exploring our beautiful beaches, bays and bush, dangling a fishing line or catching up with friends for coffee.
There really is so much to do in Lake Mac and staycationing provides you with the perfect opportunity to ‘make like a tourist’ and try things or visit places for the first time.
Why not stretch out on one of our walking trails? Lake Mac Holiday Parks has compiled a top 10 on its website (lakemacholidayparks.com.au).
Or, you could jump on your bike and discover our extensive and ever-expanding network of off-road paths, including the 18-kilometre shared path between Belmont and Booragul or the Fernleigh Track.
There are plenty of options for getting out on the water, but for a special experience, you could try the kayaking trail from Dora Creek to the swinging bridge at Cooranbong, which takes paddlers upstream through scenic residential and rural areas. Download a mobile-friendly version of the City’s best walking and kayak trials at lakemactrails.com.
Don’t forget that a number of school playgrounds will remain open for public use during the holidays from 8am to 6pm each day.
