Lake Macquarie History

Sulphide Workers Club (Club Macquarie)

In 1967 the Welfare Club moved into their new premises (now Club Macquarie) next to the Golf Club and activities began to be reduced at the Sulphide oval. Tennis was still played there until nearly 1990. The Pasminco Works closed on 12 September 2003. Cricket was also played in the large triangle shaped block Sulphide owned next to the Ambulance Station. A cement cricket pitch remained until Pasminco closed.
