Venue - Hunter Ice Skating Stadium
230 Macquarie Road Warners Bay - 02 4954 4499

By car
HISS is located on an access road off Macquarie Road, between the suburbs of Warners Bay and Cardiff.
If travelling from Sydney on the F3, take the Cardiff exit at the West Wallsend Interchange and follow it through Edgeworth, Glendale, Cardiff and turn left onto the access road before you arrive at Warners Bay McDonalds

By train
Cardiff station is the closest station to HISS, and is an express stop from Sydney on the Newcastle line. Cardiff station is approximately 2.8km from HISS. Taxis are regularly available at the Taxi stand outside the Iron Horse Inn about 100m from the station (downhill).

By air
Newcastle Airport is approximately 34km from Hunter Ice Skating Stadium, and a fairly expensive taxi ride. As there is limited public transport a hire car may be the most convenient method of transport. See below for shuttle bus details.

Newcastle Airport services flights from Virgin Australia, Jetstar, QANTAS and Brindabella airlines. Direct flights are available from/to Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra.

The least expensive way to get to HISS from Newcastle Airport would be to get the airport shuttle bus to Newcastle CBD, and catch the train to Cardiff, taking a taxi for the last few kilometres.

A regular bus service runs between the airport and the Newcastle CBD.

Cardiff station is an express stop from Sydney and is a good option for those flying into Sydney Airport, or heading from Newcastle or Broadmeadow stations.

Newcastle & Lake Macquarie

Newcastle

Newcastle is Australia's largest non-capital metro area in Australia (sixth overall).

Newcastle & Lake Macquarie area contains a mix of heavy industry and natural beauty, often side-by-side. The area is famous for its beaches and "the lake" is enveloped by walking/cycling trails, parks and leafy suburbs.

Newcastle harbour is the largest coal exporter in the world, and the coal industry extends throughout the Hunter Region.

Lake Macquarie

While the City of Lake Macquarie is both larger and more populous than Newcastle, it doesn't have a city centre and is generally considered to be part of the Greater Newcastle district.

Lake Macquarie is Australia's largest coastal salt-water lake and is popular for sailing and fishing.

Warners Bay

Warners Bay is a lake-side suburb approximately 15-20 mintues drive from the Newcastle CBD. Warners Bay is a popular location for families with walking paths extending along its entire lakefront area.

Warners Bay boasts a strong cafe and restaurant strip overlooking Lake Macquarie, along with shopping and other facilities.
