Lake Macquarie History

Lucky's Lane

A private lane, Lucky's Lane, off Racecourse Road was named after Bidas 'Lucky' Lucian, the owner of Lucky's Scrapmetals Pty Ltd. 'Lucky' died in 2000. In earlier times this lane led to a railway level crossing which followed on to Stockton Borehole Colliery. One of the gatekeepers remembered here was Wally Dray of Boolaroo.
