An easy going coastal hamlet that is fringed by 9 miles of pristine beach to the east and the azure waters of Swansea Channel to the south, Blacksmiths remains a virtually undiscovered oasis to the delight of the lucky locals who live here and enjoy its peaceful surrounds.

With the beach at the end of almost every street, you’re moments from walking on golden sands and swimming in patrolled surf. One of the only beaches in Newcastle & Lake Macquarie where you can cruise along the sand dunes in your 4WD.

Recently restored boardwalks along Boatrowers Nature Reserve lead you to sheltered swmming at the famous Granny Pool and take you all the way to the stunning 360 degree viewpoint and prime fishing stretch along the Breakwall that acts as the border between the beach and channel.

This ultra flat suburb also offers easy walking distance to the main shopping strip which includes a doctor, chemist, butcher, baker, mechanic, post office, take-away shop, hardware store, antiques shop, hairdresser and a general store.
