Walking and cycling

Lake Macquarie has an extensive and expanding network of tracks, trails and off-road shared pathways, providing opportunities for recreational cycling, jogging and walking; and helping people move about the city to get to shops, services, workplaces and schools. 

Council is committed to improving walking and cycling for both recreation and to improve transport choices. We are currenty preparing a new strategy, the Walking, Cycling and Better Streets Strategy, to guide us. Sign up to Shape Lake Mac to have your say on the draft strategy.
