LAKE MAC LIGHTS UP: Your ultimate guide to Float Your Boat 2022

The Float Your Boat festival returns to Lake Macquarie this month for two nights of family fun.

The rainbow of coloured boats will make their way from Marmong Point Marina to Toronto, Coal Point and Wangi Wangi on Friday 24 June and Marmong Point Marina to Warners Bay, Eleebana, Valentine and Belmont on the eastern side of Lake Macquarie on Saturday 25 June.
