GET READY: Lake Mac will host the second round of the 2018 Australian Offshore Superboats Championships at the weekend.

Lake Macquarie will become a hot spot of action and adrenalin at the weekend as we welcome the Australian Offshore Superboats to our City for the third successive year.

We will host the second round of the 2018 Australian Offshore Superboats Championships, an exhilarating display of high-speed racing set against the spectacular backdrop of our picturesque lake and foreshore.

The Superboat series will be the feature of the Lake Mac Big Weekend, two days jam-packed with fun and free activities around key vantage points from Eleebana to Warners Bay and along the Marmong Point foreshore reserve.

A host of activities, attractions and entertainment will also be on offer on dry land, including markets, Lions Club displays and children’s amusement rides at Warners Bay and a pop-up bar, eateries and free water sports activities at Marmong Point. Speers Point Park will host a show-and-shine car display and farmers markets on Saturday 13 October, and a food and wine festival on Sunday.

The weekend will kick off with a free ‘Jet and Jive’ concert at Warners Bay foreshore on Friday between 6-9pm.

It is fantastic to have an event like this that not only brings our community together but  shows off our beautiful city and lake to visitors and water sports fans from other parts of the country.
