Lake Macquarie History

T. C. Frith Avenue

This section of Main Road 217 was built in 1973 and the renaming of Creek Road was extended past Pasminco land to join with the old Main Road near Cockle Creek Railway Station. Named after Thomas Charles Frith, he had been a local businessman, landowner and Lake Macquarie Shire President and Councillor. After being closed and run down for some time the scout hall opened as the new look scout activity centre ('The Post' 24 May 2006).
