Whether you've been here for years or are planing to move into the new Highpoint apartments, for many  of us New Year resolutions include a plan to get active. So today we're giving you a few tips on how you can achieve those resolutions not far from your front door. Here's a few tips on getting active in Charlestown this Summer.

Get on the right track...


The Fernleigh Track is the area's most popular cycle route. It attracts riding enthusiasts from all over Lake Macquarie and especially Charlestown.

A quick ride from Charlestown to Burwood Road in Kahibah and you're on the track that can either take you into Newcastle or down to Belmont - both perfect for a mid ride swim !

The 15km track, which suits all levels of fitness, follows a disused coal haul rail line providing a peaceful and scenic walking or cycling track, through beautiful bushland and wetland areas.

FIND YOUR TRIBE: There are plenty of riding groups, like this one, that meet at Charlestown cafes before and after social rides along the track and many families utilise the space for weekend activities.

Get swinging in Charlestown...


Ok ok ok, we know a lot of you put golf in the "recreation" category, but as far as we're concerned... If you're walking, you're active.

So why not spice up your next walk by hitting a few white balls around the picturesque bushland of the Charlestown Golf Club. 

The golfers in our office tell us that the par 72 course offers something for every type of golfer, from beginner to advanced. The Club prides itself on providing a fantastic experience for the novice or "social golfer" and  do their best to ensure everyone has a great time.
