    Lake Macquarie City Council

Situated between the quiet suburbs of Belmont and Valentine by the Lake, the Green Point Foreshore Reserve has all the features to make it one of Lake Macquarie’s most scenic and enjoyable natural attractions for cycling, walking and picnicking.

Originally the site of various mining activities over the past 150 years, the now Council Reserve is undergoing extensive rehabilitation works to establish it as one of Lake Macquarie’s foremost natural bushland parks.

The bushland at Green Point features much native flora and fauna, adding interest to the walk. The flora includes open forests of Spotted Gum, Grey Gum, White Mahogany and Forest Red Gum. There is also remnant Littoral Rainforests. These areas provide habitat for native fauna including the Ring-tail Possum, Squirrel Glider, Powerful Owl and Sea Eagle. All this is easily encountered on the established walking trails throughout the reserve and improved access to the rainforest by a constructed boardwalk to preserve the area for the future.

There are three main walking access points into the reserve: the end of Dilkera Avenue at Valentine, The Shores Way at Belmont and Green Point Drive behind Belmont Hospital.

The main car park is located off The Shores Way, Belmont. From here you can take a short easy walk called Centenary of Federation Heritage Trail. Suitable for all ages and approximately one hour return trip, the track is straight and flat making it ideal for families, prams and wheelchairs. Take time to read the historic markers along the way giving you insight into former local industries. Continue on until the track rises slightly arriving at Sea Eagle Park, a former gravel quarry which has been transformed into a picturesque grassy picnic area with amenities; free electric bbq’s, toilets, picnic tables, shelters and drinking water. Return is by the same path.

The beauty of Green Point Reserve is it provides the walker with several track variations. You can also follow the waters edge or inland tracks to embark on your own adventure that will keep you occupied for a few hours.

Dogs, 4WD’s, motor bikes and camping are not permitted in the reserve.
