A town and suburb in New South Wales administered by the City of Lake Macquarie local government area, Teralba is situated 22 kilometres west-southwest of Newcastle, 8 kilometres north of Toronto, 18.1 kilometres southwest of Hamilton and 140 kilometres north of Sydney. It sits on the northern shoreline of Lake Macquarie, bordered by the Cockle Creek to the east and north, the suburbs of Fassifern, Booragul and Woodrising to the south and the suburbs of Killingworth and Wakefield to the west. The area was first called “Tirelbah” by Europeans in 1831, and was changed to the current spelling two years later. The name is believed to have come either from the Trialba Estate of Ranclaud or some Aboriginal words such as “tir-reel-ba,” which means “place of ticks,” or another that means “place where edible bush grows.” Today, Teralba is a mixture of rural lands and residential areas, with several businesses dotting and servicing the township. It has a public school, a lakeside caravan park, a service station, several bus stops and a train station. Places of interest and recreational spots include the Tulkalba Park, the Five Islands Wetlands, the Teralba Bowling Club, Lake Macquarie Dockers AFL Club and Newtec Pistol Club.
