The Central Coast
The Central Coast is a vibrant mix of urban hubs, beach towns and hinterland villages.
As our guests you are invited to uncover what makes our town centres and neighbourhoods great places to live, work and play; we are confident you won’t be disappointed as the whole area comes with plenty of opportunities for all age groups!
Here are just a few offers to get you started:
The hourly ferry service from Ettalong or Wagstaff is a bliss when you need to get out of the sun. Brisbane Waters can also be wandered by small ferries. Rather fun to catch the ferry to Palm Beach from Wagstaff and do a “gal’s” spot of shopping.
For the golfers who experience withdrawal symptoms – Gosford and Woy Woy courses will solve the problem and give you a quick fix.
Nestled between Narara Creek and our CBD, with sweeping views of the mountains, the clubs offer members and guests a warm, friendly golfing experience rich in encouragement and a sense of tradition that only comes with age.
Just over an hour’s drive north from Sydney, the Par 71 (ladies’ par 73) course at Gosford Golf Club offers a challenging but fair 18 holes; the gently undulating terrain caters for beginners through to professionals.
Fisherman’s Wharf at Woy Woy is good for seafood and pelican feeding times are worth watching at the Entrance.
The Pelican Feed takes place on The Entrance waterfront each day and is one of the Central Coast’s most popular tourist attractions, entertaining and educating visitors and residents alike about the area’s own pelican colony.
It was all started over 20 years ago by staff at the local fish shop, who would feed scraps to the pelicans every day. Then in 1996, Council built the feeding platform known as Pelican Plaza.
They, in conjunction with the many sponsors and a wonderful team of volunteers, have made it possible to feed the pelicans whole fresh fish 365 days a year and make it the spectacle it is today.
***Pelican feed is closed until further notice***
Gosford Regional Gallery at West Gosford has great Japanese Gardens, a coffee shop and of course, gallery and gift shop. Gallery 460 near Kincumber has a gallery and huge sculpture park which are worth a visit.
Need a nature fix? The Central Coast offers National Parks for walking, Brisbane Waters for boating, the Australian Reptile Park at Somersby, and the Wildlife Park at Calga – stroll through trails to local beaches, view the ocean from high rock ledges.
