Lake Macquarie and District Museum

Opened in 1992, the Lake Macquarie and District Museum is located in the once abandoned, now picturesque Toronto Railway Station on the shores of Lake Macquarie.

There is an extensive photograph collection some of which date back to the 19th century. The photographs show the development of the area from past to present.

Themed displays include presentations on the Rathmines–former Flying Boat base, the history of the Morriset Hospital and the historic railway.

The Museum, archive room and Heritage Research Centre is operated by the Lake Macquarie and District Historical Society.

Picturesque setting
