Lake Barfield

Natural Attractions

Lake Barfield is located between the bustling beachside communities of Half Tide and Salonika Beach, near the Hay Point Coal Terminal.

It is a small, picturesque lake that provides peaceful waters for a variety of fish, bird and animal life.

Zealous birdwatchers will enjoy this beautiful bird sanctuary, home to graceful black swans, wondrous white herons and exquisite egrets.

The lake was constructed by the Barfield family, one of the original founding families in the Hay Point Area. The freshwater lake sits on private land, so it is advisable to take binoculars to enjoy the prominent birdlife.

This is a great spot to set up for an afternoon if you are an avid birdwatcher or wildlife photographer.
