Central Coast NSW
With its golden beaches for surfing, swimming, diving or walking, the Central Coast is a great weekend escape or an ideal holiday destination.
One hours drive north from Sydney, the Central Coast offers a chance to relax with friends and family experiencing the vast waterways of Brisbane Waters and Tuggerah Lakes, the many national parks, state forests and beautiful sandy beaches.
Terrigal is a popular beachside resort offering good surf beaches, boutique style accommodation, shops and fine restaurants. The Entrance, further north, is famous for relaxing family holidays.
The Central Coast has large areas of protected bushland to explore, or take a kayak tour along the Hawkesbury River and enjoy the drama of sheer sandstone cliffs and tranquil rainforest. Hire a houseboat and leave the rest of the world behind.
The Central Coast offers a holiday with endless possibilities - whether you want to go abseiling, horse riding, surfing, scuba diving or just relax with a good book. Even if you only stay for the weekend, you won't be in a hurry to leave.
