Wyee is a small town in the Lake Macquarie region of New South Wales, Australia, in the City of Lake Macquarie. It is near the Sydney-Newcastle Freeway and has a railway station (opened 1892)[2] on NSW TrainLink's Central Coast & Newcastle Line. It had a population of 1,487 in 2001, which significantly increased to 2,588 in 2011.

Wyee is said to be derived from an Awabakal Aboriginal term for "fire" or "place of bushfires".[3][4]
