Awaba House proposal


A cafe, artist in residence and intimate function space are among the proposed future uses for a revitalised Awaba House on the Lake Macquarie waterfront at Booragul.

Lake Macquarie City Council is seeking community feedback to help guide the future of the historic building, which was severely damaged by fire last August. 

Manager Property and Business Development, David Antcliff, said the Awaba House Revitalisation Community Reference Group (CRG) and the council had been working to develop several options for the site.

“Awaba House has an intrinsic connection with the Lake Macquarie community so it’s important we get this right,” Mr Antcliff said.

“The CRG has agreed on a number of proposed uses and options for Awaba House that warrant further investigation, and we are ready to hear from the wider community what they think.

“This will help shed light on whether we’re on the right track.

 “We want to ensure that any decision we make for the site considers the needs of current and future generations of Lake Macquarie city.”
