It’s nearly time to head back down to the shoreline of Lake Mac for ‘Float Your Boat’ 2022. 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 2022. 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.
