Lake Macquarie History


Seahampton came into existence when the nearby Seaham No. 1 colliery was opened. Its name was originally Seaham, and evolved to become Seahampton.(Source: 'Holmesville, One Mans Vision' by L. Price.). After the mine ceased, the growth of Seahampton was affected. Today it is virtually built out with new and brightly reconditioned cottages.

Seahampton is the most northern suburb in Lake Macquarie City.
