“The Museum of Art and Culture Lake Macquarie (MAC) is an exceptional cultural and tourist destination, widely recognised for its exhibition program and work with the community.
Located on the shores of Australia’s largest coastal saltwater lake, the leafy grounds include the award-winning gallery with cafe, retail shop, mosaic pathways, and a sculpture park. MAC is unique among regional galleries due to its location and quality of programming. Touring shows alternate with gallery-curated exhibitions featuring nationally significant artists, many of whom share a connection with the Hunter.
Contemporary visual arts, craft and design practice is the main focus of our exhibitions, and respectful Aboriginal projects are a strong component with focused Aboriginal programming-yapang.”
