Map of Wyee, NSW 2259

Wyee ( WHY-ee) is a small town in Greater Newcastle that is located in the City of Lake Macquarie local government area in the Hunter region of New South Wales, Australia. The town is near the Pacific Motorway and has a railway station which opened in 1892 that is on NSW TrainLink's Central Coast & Newcastle Line which is part of the Main Northern NSW line. It had a population of 1,487 in 2001, which significantly increased to 2,588 in 2011, and decreased to 2,406 in 2016.

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

The Awabakal are the traditional people of this area.

Wyee is part of the City of Lake Macquarie local government area but it lacks a connection to sewer system; there are the Hunter Water Sewage Treatment Plant and the Central Coast Council Treatment Plant in the area, in the neighbouring Central Coast region.

Wyee Colliery, when State-owned, operated here 1962–2002. It re-opened in 2004–05 as Mannering Colliery, operated by the Centennial Coal Coy.

In a part of the town west of the railway station known as West Wyee, people live in an informal settlement, without water and sewerage services. The area was subdivided in 1914 but not zoned for residential development.
