With the Newcastle round of the national Supercars series only weeks away, accommodation options in Newcastle and the wider Hunter region are booking out fast.
Lake Mac Holiday Parks, located in spectacular locations on the shores of Lake Macquarie at Swansea and Wangi and within walking distance to Blacksmiths Beach, still have a range of affordable accommodation options available for the weekend of 24-26 November, with no race-weekend premium on rates.
Mayor of Lake Macquarie, Cr Kay Fraser, said a tourism event on the scale of the Supercars race offered tremendous benefits for surrounding areas in the region.
“With tens of thousands expected to attend the event, and many travelling from outside region, spectators will be looking for accommodation, places to eat and things to do during their stay,” Cr Fraser said.
“Lake Mac Holiday Parks offer an affordable option to spectators, with accommodation prices ranging from $32* per night for an unpowered camp site to $225* per night for a deluxe villa.
“Lake Mac Holiday Parks are only a short drive from Newcastle. You can enjoy our beautiful pristine beaches and lake views in the morning, and be trackside for the race by lunchtime.”
