With the Myall Lakes National Park to the south,
Wallingat National Park to the north, Booti Botti National
Park to the north east, and fringed by De Bert Reserve,
there is plenty for the bush walker and plenty of camping
facilities in the region.
Much of the lake is shallow and
offers a safe place for children to play. To the east of the lake is the
sandy embankment of Cellito Beach, separating Smiths Lake from the Tasman Sea.
You can hire a small boat to cross the lake, to Cellito
Beach, then take a plunge into the Tasman Sea. After a day
of excitement and adventure, drop into the Frothy Coffee
cafe. The cafe is located on the shores of Smiths Lake and
and has been the boatshed since the early sixties. It was
originally built by Charles Degotardi, to cater for the
seaplane passengers who were flown in to buy land for sale.
