SUBURB SNAPSHOT

Coal Point owes its name to the first coal mine established at Lake Macquarie.

Over a century later, the suburb has progressed well beyond its industrial roots.

Today, Coal Point is best recognised as a tight-knit community with a lush bushland outlook, quiet streets and magnificent waterfronts. 

On the western shores of the lake, Coal Point is situated on the peninsula between Kilaben and Carey Bay. 

LIFESTYLE

Coal Point consists largely of freestanding homes on spacious blocks. Its waterfronts are known as some of the grandest on the lake. 

The multiple reserves and lakeside activities are popular with locals. The suburb has a public school and is just two kilometres from shops and cafes at Toronto. 

FROM THE EXPERTS 

- From First National Toronto 

Coal Point continues to hold the lion’s share of premium waterfronts on Lake Macquarie and is a highly regarded and sought-after place to live.

First National principal and Coal Point agent of the year David Westerman knows first hand the attraction of the area and what it offers its residents.

“Coal Point is an exclusive suburb at the end of the point and is much loved by its residents,” Mr Westerman said.

“Offering abundant water access via parks, boat ramps and public easements, lifestyle and work-life balance are easy to manage in this delightful spot.”

Mr Westerman has lived in Coal Point for many years and has come to love the area and its residents.

“We get asked to sell a lot of properties here including top-end waterfronts and I am constantly amazed at the variety and quality of our houses here,” he said.

“Coal Point residents are good people, not pretentious and always open for a chat and a laugh.”
