Kay Fraser | Plenty of options for a city ‘staycation’

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. 

Kay Fraser, Mayor
