Lake Macquarie History

Marks Point Road

Originally an unnamed road it was later called Government Road. There were subdivisions in 1902 and 1909, a land auction was held here in 1915 by Lang Wood and Co. of John and James Marks' property. Marks Point was a popular site, and land sold well.

Leading to the point its name was eventually changed to Marks Point Road. There was a property near here owned by William Arnott Winn (grandson of the owner of Arnott's biscuits and proprietor of Winn's store in Newcastle).
