Welcome to WestLake Tidings, the community thoroughfare for Morisset and surrounds on the western shores of beautiful Lake Macquarie.
We’re here to engage local people, build community spirit and promote the local goods and service suppliers of the area. If you have the urge and are community minded why not drop by and help us change the world for the better.
The town is named for Major James Thomas Morisset, who camped here in 1823 while making the first overland journey from Newcastle to Sydney. The earliest settlement in the area was at Cooranbong in 1826, about 5 kilometres west of the town and near the foot of the . . . .

The western Lake Macquarie area incorporating Morisset are blessed with huge and growing array of businesses to serve the community.

Farewell already to our outgoing Rotary Youth Exchange Student for 2017/18 Agathe Dulongcourty.
Agathe had a great experience in Australia for the last 12 months and made an army of friends who are all sad to see her returning to France so soon. We all hope to see you here again soon Agathe!

OUR LOCAL VISION
Rotary Morisset is passionate about developing and fostering the health and wellbeing of young people in our community. The huge increase in the incidence and reporting of adolescent mental health in our
immediate area is not only alarming but totally unacceptable. 15% of Morisset Youth self-report as being diagnosed with a mental health condition.
We are determined to make a difference. It is our intention to run this golf event on an annual basis to raise between $20,000 to $30,000 p.a. Rotary, in partnership with Morisset High School, will ensure our local students directly benefit from the delivery of proactive, proven support measures. Students could seek support at point of need through Morisset High School.
