Experience Lake Macquarie 250 years ago

Through the power of virtual reality, you can now take a journey back in time to when the people of Awaba (Lake Macquarie), traditional owners of this land, were the sole inhabitants of the region. The name ‘Awaba’ means
“place of flat or plain surface”.


Discover three scenarios, each telling a different story from Lake Macquarie’s Aboriginal history. These immersive virtual experiences allow users to feel as though they have truly stepped into a time machine and emerged in the past.


Access the virtual reality experiences HERE.


You can also access Virtual Awaba using a virtual reality headset at these locations:

In summer the beach is fantastic so bring your swimmers and your surfboard, have a beer and a schnitzel at the Catho Pub and meet the locals.
