Central Coast

The Central Coast is a leisurely one hour drive north of Sydney. With a combination of bays, beaches, lakes and lush hinterland, this is the perfect location for a tranquil beachside getaway.

The seaside town of Terrigal is characterised by a row of stately Norfolk Island Pines, defining the beachfront esplanade with its sophisticated dining and café culture.

There are many natural wonders to be explored including The Skillion at Terrigal Beach, a rugged coastal landmark providing the perfect vantage point to see the whales migrating during winter.

The Entrance has a cosmopolitan atmosphere and is renowned for its huge pelican population. The beaches are fantastic for swimming and fishing and the nearby Tuggerah Lake is ideal for waterskiing, canoeing, sailing, rowing and sail boarding.

Ettalong is a family favourite with safe beaches, lagoons and waterways. The area is also popular for fishing and has great boating facilities.
