MAC - Museum of Art and Culture


Lake Macquarie's art gallery is widely recognised for its exhibition program and work with the community. Now operating in newly refurbished premises under the name Museum of Art and Culture - MAC the art museum remains an exceptional cultural and tourist destination.

Located on the shores of Australia’s largest coastal saltwater lake, the leafy grounds include the award-winning gallery with a sculpture park and mosaic pathways. Lake Macquarie is unique among regional galleries due to its location and quality of programming. Touring shows alternate with museum-curated exhibitions featuring nationally significant artists, many of whom share a connection with the Hunter.

Contemporary visual arts, craft and design practice is the main focus of our exhibitions, and respectful Aboriginal projects under the banner of Yapang are a strong component of the program.

MAC can be easily reached via the lake foreshore cycleway, the water or by public transport.
