Blacksmiths is a suburb located in the City of Lake Macquarie in New South Wales, 24 kilometres away from Newcastle’s central business district. The suburb is adjacent to the Pacific Ocean and in between Belmont and Swansea. Because of its proximity to the Pacific Ocean, Blacksmiths is home to a number of beautiful beaches. The Blacksmiths Beach, a patrolled beach near the end of the coastline, is popular with swimmers as well as walkers and cyclists. Nature lovers would be pleased to know that the Blacksmiths Nature Reserve is just one kilometre away from the beach. The Blacksmiths Beachside Holiday Park is also just a short walk from the beach and offers accommodations, a playground for children and tennis courts.
