Lakeside in Patonga

With family and friends, we jetted down from Newcastle and arrived at our incredibly, charming and relaxing lakeside holiday house in Patonga, where we planned on spending a laid back weekend. It was filled with bushwalks, boat rides and bliss as we ate local seafood and took in the landscape.

The house is situated perfectly in Patonga, with only a short walk getting you to almost anywhere you needed to be. Whether it was the Boat Shed for a burger and a cocktail, the local playground, or the array of scenic bush walks, it had it all.

The highlight was exploring the lake in the rowboat and stand-up paddleboards. We even found a secluded beach!

Paddle boarding on the lake
Across the road from the house, there is private lake access, where we launched the paddleboards and explored upstream. We found a secluded beach, which we pulled up on and relaxed....
Warrah Trig Bushwalk
This 2-3km return hike is predominately uphill but relatively easy and well suited for kids. Be rewarded with a fantastic view of Patonga and the Barrenjoey Lighthouse in Sydney's Northern Beaches....
