Lake Macquarie History


The City Council of Lake Macquarie acknowledge the Aboriginal people known today as the Awabakal, as the traditional Custodians of the land, respecting Aboriginal Elders past, present and future. Lake Macquarie City Council recognise the local Aboriginal community today in all of their diversity, who came forward to share their experiences, knowledge, images and memories.

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.
