Invest in Lake Mac

Population and housing growth

With a current population of more than 204,000, the City is targeting high growth over the next 20 years. This forecast population growth positions the City as a prime investment opportunity and a desirable location for large-scale operations looking to relocate. We are also simplifying development processes and stimulating the construction industry to increase the number of new dwellings available in the City.

Prime development land and location

Lake Macquarie offers thousands of hectares of desirable land for infill, brown and greenfield development. With prime residential land positioned near the coastline and lake as well, as strategically placed employment land alongside major heavy vehicle routes and proposed rail corridors, Lake Macquarie City is a must-see location for your next residential development or investment project. The City is also positioned at the midpoint of the eastern seaboard making it an attractive location for commercial operations targeting a single and centralised Australian base.


The region offers low development and operational costs, with an idyllic lifestyle for your family and staff. The cost of industrial land is up to 80 per cent less while commercial rental is more than 25 per cent lower than Sydney. Plus, you can access a productive, skilled workforce with lower employment costs mainly due to high loyalty and lower turnover.

Activity-based tourism opportunities

The region has experienced strong growth within the adventure and experience-based tourism offer, but there is an exceptional opportunity for further growth.

Leading innovation

The City is becoming a leading regional innovation hub with diverse industry and a thriving start-up community. The internet of things network, access to backhaul fibre, investments in smart initiatives and proximity to power generation and water, provide a strong platform for data centre development, digital innovation and tech-based operations to establish in the area.

Commercially focused

We’ve taken an innovative approach to economic development by establishing Dantia in 2014, to work with business, investors and all levels of government.

Dantia is an independent, standalone company and provides a more agile and commercially responsive approach to the growth of the economy and jobs.  Dantia works to understand your project, assist in setting a strategic path of action and achieve certainty in your decision-making process.
