Geography

Ferodale is immediately to the east of the Pacific Highway and to the north of Richardson Road, the main road between Raymond Terrace and Port Stephens. It is bisected by Medowie Road, which connects the Pacific Highway to Medowie. The entire southwestern corner of the suburb, approximately 39 km2 (15 sq mi) or 48% of the total area, is occupied by Grahamstown Lake and its immediate surrounds. Although the suburb borders Raymond Terrace, residents of the suburb are closer to Medowie.
