Lake Macquarie in poetry and song
World Poetry Day, 21st March 2017
Lake Macquarie's beauty and the lifestyle enjoyed by her residents has been portrayed in poetry and song over many years. From the earliest days of settlement to recent times, they are a reflection of the society in which the poets and lyricists lived. Engaging with the poems or songs is a great way to see how life has changed, or remained the same, in and around our lake.
From social commentary to lyrical and passionate descriptions to witty, catchy tunes, each one portrays a unique perspective of Lake Macquarie.
