By sea and by land: New Nature & Wildlife Tour by Coast XP

Step aboard CoastXP’s custom-built adventure boat for an all-inclusive cruise on Lake Macquarie and a guided nature walk overlooking the largest permanent saltwater lake in the entire southern hemisphere.
The boat tour starts at the idyllic Pelican Foreshore. You will be cruising around the bays, beaches and islands, with local ocean enthusiast Dominic May offering insights into the area’s maritime and World War II history, its geology and Aboriginal heritage.

A 2km guided bushwalk through the Lake Macquarie State Conservation Area on Wangi Peninsula will have you exploring sandstone caves, eucalypt bushland and native wildlife with some of the most iconic and picturesque views over the Lake as a spectacular bonus.

After the walk, there’s time to relax at Dobell Park while enjoying a premium, individual grazing lunch box from Picnique Collective. Owners Kayla and Eliza offer both sweet and savoury options and are happy to cater to each guest’s dietary requirements.

Savour the views across the water towards Pulbah Island Nature Reserve before taking another boat ride back to Pelican.
