Lake Macquarie History

Wellard Parade

Originally named Lake Crescent in 1909 and was later renamed Wellard Parade because of confusion caused with a Teralba street of the same name. The street was gazetted Wellard Parade on 8 April 1960. This street was named after Archie Wellard, who lived for many years on the waterfront.
