Wangi Wangi (/ˈwɒndʒi wɒndʒi/) is 30 minutes from Wyong, 1.5 hours from Sydney, 36 minutes from Ourimbah, 50 minutes from The Entrance, 50 minutes from Newcastle.
A suburb of the City of Lake Macquarie in New South Wales, Australia, Wangi Wangi forms a peninsula jutting eastwards into Lake Macquarie. Wangi Wangi is a well-known holiday spot, frequented in the early days by families from the coalfields. It is known for its beautiful views, bushwalking, and fishing spots.
Wangi is also well known as the former home of artist William Dobell. Dobell’s 1948 Wynne Prize winning landscape Storm Approaching Wangi depicts the locality.
Accommodation is available at Wangi Wangi and surrounding areas of Lake Macquarie. Holiday Parks, camping, van parks and grounds are in the area and around the Central Coast. If you have a boat Swansea, Belmont, Blacksmiths, Caves beach, Gwandalan are easy access as there is a boat ramp opposite the club.
