Lakes

the great lakes is all about amazing lakes

There is something about lakes. They have a strangely calming affect and draw people to them. The Great Lakes has an incredible and unique triple lakes system found nowhere else in Australia. Wide expanses of open water dominate the landscape and influence their surroundings.

The three ‘great’ lakes – Myall, Smiths and Wallis – each have their own personality. In the past, they were a link between the timber industry and the coast and home to a thriving fishing industry. Today they are recreational hubs. They offer a multitude of options to experience them. You can stay along the edge or on them, dine or enjoy a coffee lakeside, celebrate with them as a backdrop, paddle, sail, swim or boat, fish, bird spot or simply sit back and relax. They are also home to an incredible diversity of wildlife and plant life.
