Revitalising Awaba House

Awaba House on the shores of Booragul was a much-loved local venue for a coffee or a meal in a wonderful lakeside setting. In August 2019, the popular venue was damaged by fire.

We’re planning for the future of Awaba House and we need your help. We are working with our community to develop design options for the future of this popular facility. It is important we get this right because this local-heritage venue has an intrinsic connection with our community.

Earlier this year, we asked you to share your memories and ideas to inform the future of the site.

Now, we are asking for your feedback on proposed uses and options for the site to help shape the proposal. Your feedback will support us in creating a building that captures the heritage elements of Awaba House while providing a modern and revitalised facility for the community.

In addition to feedback from the community, we will be looking at proposed options for the site through the lens of our Sustainability Policy. The Sustainability Policy describes four pillars of sustainability to ensure that decision-making considers the needs of current and future generations of Lake Macquarie City. Find out more about the four pillars of the Sustainability Policy . Visit our Frequently Asked Questions for more information about the project.

Complete the survey below, Monday 20 April, to provide your feedback on the proposed uses and options for Awaba House.
