I am a weekend wanderer. There is a great way to spend a weekend and that's visiting the great places we have here in the Hunter. Keep an eye on my facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/Wkndwanderer

Lakeside Leisure Centre is located on Leisure Way at Raymond Terrace. The centre is run by the YMCA in conjunction with Port Stephens Council.
The biggest attraction is the pools, especially in the hot summer ahead. There is a 50m outdoor heated 8 lane pool and an indoor heated fun pool and toddlers pool.
It makes a great place to take the entire family for a day full of fun. If you want to look at the YMCA website you will find links to opening hours, class times for kids learn to swim or adults water aerobics and up and coming program of attractions.
The centre also has its own Facebook page where you can check out all the latest information and activities at the centre.
But the pool is only part of the great fun that can be had in the area. Just up from the Leisure Centre is Raymond Terrace Bowling Centre where the whole family could enjoy a great few hours enjoying one of the best family activities that is both fun and healthy, and that is Ten Pin Bowling.
