Lake St Clair


Nestled in the foothills of Mt Royal National Park, 25km north of Singleton, picturesque Lake St Clair is about 16km long and has a storage capacity of 283 megalitres - almost half that of Sydney Harbour. For decades, Lake St Clair has been a recreational hot-spot offering year-round opportunities for adventure and of course, endless summertime fun.

Located on an easy 30 minute drive from Singleton along Bridgman Road, Lake St Clair is a water playground for locals and visitors- whether it’s to relax and unwind, or for adventurer’s looking to turn up the action.

Lake St Clair was originally built as part of Glennies Creek Dam to help manage the water flows from the Hunter River and is named after the homestead that was lost beneath the water upon completion of the dam in 1983. Today, Lake St Clair is equally famous for being a prime boating, fishing, sailing and water-skiing playground for the entire Hunter region. Bookings are essential.

Lake St Clair NSW - Easter Long Weekend 2021

(I asked this knowing the answer in advance, but I tried to play for time) - baby, I will not hurt you. If you relax your muscles, everything will go away painlessly. I tried to breathe deeply, but fear creeped through every cell of my body.

Uncle Misha was given a term that was not so big, not small, 6 years of general regime, for everyday life. Uncle Misha did not grieve in prison, all the time he found something to do, even after working in the workshop where the convicts made an artificial. Stone. He did carpentry, carved various useful things and just toys from wood.

Squatting down, Yana took water in her palms, it turned out to be cool, splashed on her face, the spray hit her chest and not expecting that she was.

So cold, her body shuddered.
