Morisset Park was listed on TripAdvisor as a great place to have a picnic lunch and see kangaroos. We are suckers for seeing roos and we needed a stop for lunch as we circled Lake Macquarie. We did find the kangaroos and had a great time with them; however it was not what we were expecting. First, the Morisset Picnic Area is on the lake but not near the kangaroos. Second, the kangaroo area is adjacent to a mental hospital. We did not want to trespass on hospital grounds so we missed the turn several times. Once we found them it was fun but not a good place for a picnic, just a quick stop for a roo selfie.
