About the Central Coast

While Gosford is the central business hub of the Central Coast, picturesque villages along the coastline, such as Pearl Beach, Ettalong Beach, Hardys Bay, Avoca Beach, Terrigal, Bateau Bay, Toowoon Bay, The Entrance, Norah Head and Forresters Beach, are popular holiday destinations with many accommodation choices available, from hotels and motels, plush resorts, welcoming bed & breakfasts, hostels, caravan parks and camping grounds.

There are so many things to see and do on the Central Coast. Book one of the many available tours. Don't miss the beautiful Somersby Falls in Brisbane Water National Park and the secluded beaches and bays of Bouddi National Park. Crackneck Point Lookout in Wyrrabalong National Park is a great vantage point for whale watching.

If it’s good food you’re after, Terrigal and The Entrance have great restaurants, while Norah Head has a historic lighthouse that’s well worth a visit.
