Our Association

The Association was formed in 2010 to run the annual Lake Macquarie Boatfest when the Toronto Chamber of Commerce decided to discontinue its role as organiser.

In 2016 Boatfest moved to Rathmines and is, from now on, a picnic held as part of the Lakefest festival.

In 2013, the Association took out a lease on buildings at Rathmines, the ex-ablutions block and a retired electrical generator sub-station from the days of the World War 11 Catalina base, and so the Lake Macquarie Classic Boatshed was established,

a place where men and women gather to work on, restore and build timber boats.
