The nbn™ network set to hop into Morisset

As the nbn™ network starts to roll into Morisset, we shine the spotlight on the town best known for its national park and abundance of kangaroos.

Towns and cities all across Australia are beginning to connect to the nbn™ network, so we’re celebrating the historic moments, landmarks or features that put each area on the map.

An easy hour and a half drive north of Sydney, Morisset is located in southern Lake Macquarie, nestled between Watagan Ranges and Lake Macquarie.

Home to one of Australia’s most iconic marsupials, locals are lucky enough to spot Kangaroos hopping about frequently thanks to the known abundance around town. Locals should pack enough food to share around with these furry friends.

Another popular location to get up close and personal with the local Kangaroos is the Morisset Hospital, where they often roam freely, cheekily seeking food.

The surrounding area boasts rolling hills and a breathtaking landscape, with a handful of lookouts, mountains and grassy areas to explore. Watagan National Park is Morisset’s backyard, offering hiking, biking, lookouts and campgrounds for an ideal outdoor weekend escape.

Strap on the hiking boots and take your pick of walks between the iconic Great North walk, Turners walking track and the Circuit walking track.

All tracks offer incredible bird watching opportunities, rainforest views and great picnic areas. Residents are able to lose themselves in the green backdrop and escape the city lifestyle.

For a spectacular view which stretches across the Martinsville Vallley, you can’t go past a visit to Monkey Face lookout, although the walk might take you a while! Take those cameras and capture lasting memories.

There’s no doubt that the residents of Morisset are spoilt for choice with an abundance of flora, fauna and plently of outdoor activities!

Now that the nbn™ network has arrived in town local homes and businesses can connect, explore and share all that their area has to offer via fast broadband.

In our next series we travel to Katherine, NT. Check out our On the Map homepage for more.
