Picnic with kangaroos

From water sports to exhilarating bushwalks, Morisset is on the western foreshore of beautiful Lake Macquarie on the NSW North Coast and a gateway to the splendid Watagan Mountains. At the Morisset picnic area you can often spot kangaroos and dolphins.


For wildlife encounters by the beautiful Lake Macquarie, Morisset is an ideal holiday escape less than two hours’ drive north of Sydney. Pack a hamper and visit the Morisset picnic area in the wonderful Lake Macquarie State Conservation Area and experience kangaroos up close.
In the calm waters of Australia’s largest coastal saltwater lake are dolphins and sea turtles. You may be lucky and spot the marine creatures from the foreshore in the picnic area.
