Catherine Hill Bay is a secluded and sleepy old mining village within the City of Lake Macquarie. Access is via a sealed beach road off the Sydney - Newcastle Freeway and the Pacific Highway. The beauty of the bay and the presence of the rusty iron and lifeless machinery is well known to locals and worth being discovered by others. Rows of 19th century miners' cottages, in a residential area known as Middle Camp in a gully surrounded by high hills, line the roadside. The village is named after the schooner "Catherine Hill" which ran aground there on 21st June 1867. Coal was discovered and mined by the New Wallsend Company which bought up the land, built a jetty and opened the mine in 1873. The coastal location facilitated shipment . The enterprise employed up to 100 men. Their cottages formed the basis of the township and still line the roadside. A post office opened in 1874. The mail was initially shipped in by the company's coal steamer, the Susannah Cuthbert. The township virtually ceased to exist until the Wallarah Coal Company opened up the mines again in 1889. the second 'Mine Camp' post office was opened 16 January 1903, and closed 31 March 1952.
