Suburb Profile: Toronto


Toronto owes its origins to the Canadian city of the same name. And like its counterpart in the northern hemisphere, the suburb was founded on the western shores of a picturesque lake. 

Approximately 28 kilometres from the Newcastle CBD, Toronto today serves as the bustling commercial centre for the suburbs of western Lake Macquarie. 

The area has experienced solid capital growth for homes and a boom in its high-end apartment market. 

Toronto is considered to be the hub for public transport on the western side of Lake Macquarie. The town centre is taking on a contemporary new look as work on the $4.1 million Streetscape Master Plan enters the final stages.


In Toronto, the lifestyle pursuits of living by the lake are combined with the convenience of easy access to the M1 motorway and a central shopping hub. 

It is a popular destination for sailing, rowing and fishing due to its easy access to Lake Macquarie and offers many community festivals and activities along its shores year round.

The Boulevarde is home to a wide variety of retail outlets and several supermarkets. In recent years a number of trendy eateries have opened close to the foreshore. 

Housing stock is a combination of spectacular waterfronts and more affordable freestanding dwellings back from the water. 

The close knit community has just over 5500 residents.
