Books on Lake Macquarie
World Book Day, 2nd March 2017.
History is everywhere.
It is the story of how ordinary people lived, worked and played. It is the story of our ancestors, our shared heritage and our culture. It is in the feeling we get when we discover something new about the place we live - the more we understand about our history, the more we understand about ourselves.
Documenting the changes and developments which have shaped Lake Macquarie over time can help inform the past and shape the future, and we owe a great debt to those dedicated local historians whose passion and hard work increase the richness of our history.
The following selection of digitised books on the history of Lake Macquarie have been made possible by the generosity of authors who gave permission for us to share their work with the community.
