Take some time out and enjoy a meal at one of the local spots!

We’re about to be hit with the Christmas season, with days spent ducking and weaving the aisles amongst other chaotic shoppers, wrapping present upon present in reams of festive paper, and either trapping ourselves in the kitchen tackling a piled mess of meringue, cream and fruit (it’s meant to be a pavlova, but who can tell anymore?) or getting sunburnt while flipping a mountain of snags on the barbecue. Even thinking about all of these things has us exhausted. But once you’ve recovered from all the festivities, why not check out some of the local restaurants? Here’s some to get you started:

Crusoe’s on the Lake

Located within Lake Macquarie Yacht Club, Crusoe’s on the Lake restaurant is the perfect waterfront venue for relaxed catch-ups with friends and family. Their menu is swimming with seafood options, such as premium grade Sydney rock oysters and chilli salt and pepper squid, as well as classics like the Fisherman’s Basket. The restaurant is open for lunch from 11am to 3pm and dinner from 5pm till late seven days a week.

The Olde Bakehouse Morisset

With a menu that changes from week to week, this award-winning restaurant selects the best and freshest seasonal produce available to provide you with lovingly-created dishes. Owner and Maître D’, Jess, and chef, Dan, create exciting variations on classic Italian dishes such as vegan cannelloni and house-made gnocchi, just to name a few. They’re open for dinner 6pm to late from Wednesday to Sunday, and lunch from 12pm to 2pm on Fridays and Sundays.


Trinity Point, a lakeside resort at Morisset Park will be opening their much-anticipated marina in 2019, and with it, a stunning 120-seat restaurant. It will be a combined café and restaurant, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, with seamless indoor/outdoor dining options. The menu will be priced to cater to a wide range of visitors and locals alike.
