About Wangi Wangi

The village of Wangi Wangi is on a peninsula which penetrates the centre of the vast Lake Macquarie, whose shores support a thriving city of the same name and which is four times the size of Sydney Harbour. The lake offers a myriad aquatic delights – such as sailing, fishing, floating restaurants and various style of cruises.

Wangi Wangi is best known for its most famous citizen, the great Australian painter Sir William Dobell. His home of many years - fittingly enough named Dobell House, in Dobell Place - is now operated by the Sir William Dobell Memorial Committee and is lovingly maintained as a living museum with a fine collection of Sir William’s work, memorabilia, furniture, photographs and the like.


Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization with more than 1.4 million members in approximately 46,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the world.
