Lake Macquarie History

Irene Auston Reserve, Morisset Park

It was proposed at a public ceremony on Saturday 17 April 1999 organised by the Southlakes Landcare Group that the park be named Irene Auston Reserve in honour of longstanding resident Mrs Irene Auston who served as Secretary of the Morisset Park/Windemere Park Association for a great many years. Mrs Auston and her family provided many of the park’s facilities over time.
