Lake Macquarie History

Fossil Wing Creek, Eleebana

The name Fossil Wing Creek was chosen by the Lake Macquarie Council Strategy Committee on 17 October 2005 to reflect the internationally significant insect wing fossil beds in the area. The insects were caught in a blanket of volcanic ash and entombed around 250 million years ago.This creek starts at Dalwood Close, crosses under several streets and an oval to reach South Creek.
