Myall Lakes

The Myall Lakes are adjacent to the east coast, about 250 kilometres north of Sydney.

There are three Myall Lakes, called Myall Lake, Boolambyte Lake and The Broadwater.

When full, Myall Lakes covers an area of around 5,800 hectares. Boolambayte Lake covers an area of around 1,100 hectares and Bombah Broadwater covers an area of around 2,400 hectares.

Smiths Lake is close to the northern Myall Lakes, but is not connected nor formally part of the Myall Lakes. The lakes are partially interconnected and navigable by small craft. The Myall River flows into the western side of The Broadwater. The Myall River also flows out of The Broadwater and meanders southwest where it empties into Port Stephens between the towns of Tea Gardens and Hawks Nest. The lower Myall River progressively becomes saltier and more tidal as it flows southwards.

Most of the Myall Lakes are surrounded by the Myall Lakes National Park. The NSW National Parks & Wildlife Service operate a car ferry across the lake at Bombah Point. The area between the Myall Lakes and the sea is mainly uninhabited coastal woodlands and long isolated beaches although some of it was mined for heavy mineral sands before the 1970s. The village of Bungwahl is located on the northern shore of Myall Lakes. There are a number of small islands in the Myall Lakes.

At the northern end of Myall Lakes lies Mayers Point. This was the centre of a timber industry established by Allen Taylor and Company Limited. To assist in the transport of the logs from the forests to the lake, an extensive light railway system was constructed.

There is a selection of pet friendly accommodation venues at Myall Lakes and these include pet friendly cottages, pet friendly beach houses, pet friendly cabins, pet friendly caravan parks and pet friendly motels .

If you are not familiar with the Myall Lakes area you can be assured that there are plenty of pet friendly services available for your beloved furry friend.
