Smiths Lake is one of the beautiful coastal lakes that comprise the Great Lakes region of the Barrington Coast.

Smiths Lakes is the smaller of the region's lakes, but just as majestic. The lake offers warm calm waters, dotted with islands and bounded by national park and the tree-studded township of Smiths Lake. The lake is separated from the ocean by an impressive sandbar formation on Cellito Beach.

The village on its shores nestled amongst the tall gum trees takes its name from Smiths Lake, which is actually a saline coastal lagoon intermittently open to the sea.
