Welcome to the Lake Macquarie Classic Boat Association
Lake Macquarie Classic Boat Association was formed in 2010 to take over the running of an annual Boatfest event that commenced in 1988 as "Heritage Afloat". Boatfest, from 2016, will run as a Boaties Picnic at Rathmines Park in association with Lakefest.
In 2013, the Association took out a lease on buildings at Rathmines and started the Lake Macquarie Classic Boatshed, a place where men and women gather to work on, restore and build timber boats.
