It’s nearly time to head back down to the shoreline of Lake Mac for ‘Float Your Boat’ 2023. With a parade of brightly lit local vessels sailing on Lake Macquarie, this is a must see event for local families. We’re so excited to welcome back this event for 2023. Enjoy a colourful parade of illuminated boats cruising the foreshore, plus more activities onshore. Two separate events held over two evenings for residents on both sides of our lake.
Western Lake Mac

Eastern Lake Mac
Saturday 24 June 2023 – It’s eastern Lake Mac’s turn to experience the magic across the water. From Empire Marina’s Lake Macquarie to Warners Bay, Eleebana, Valentine and Belmont.

Lake Mac Council will be looking for boaties to help light up the lake by decorating your boat in lights and taking part in the flotilla.
Participation will be on both nights.
It’s free to enter and there’s usually some pretty cool prizes up for grabs for anyone who enters.
Keep checking back and we’ll post when it opens up.
