Tuggerah Lakes consist of three interconnected coastal lagoons: Lake Munmorah, Budgewoi Lake and Tuggerah Lake. This picturesque estuary has been shaped by a rich and vibrant history, one that began with the early Aboriginal nations contributing their knowledge of the land and water to managing the local waterways. Then, the first European settlers arrived in 1820, sparking fast urban development and prompting a massive wave of logging, fishing, dairy farming and tourism. Today, the estuary forms part of a bustling metropolitan hub, and is home to approximately 140,000 people. It’s also become a favourite destination for thousands of holidaymakers from various regions of Australia and beyond.
