Flying high on the Central Coast
Microlight adventures or tree-top adventures, flying foxes and suspension bridges, just take your pick of adventures on the Central Coast. Don't forget Australia's largest horse riding and outdoor adventure centre is here too.
Adventures on the Central Coast
The beaches, lakes, forests and national parks of the area provide the perfect backdrop for any adventure. For mountain-biking and four-wheel driving enthusiasts, nearby Ourimbah State Forest has some exciting terrain.
Try sailboarding, kayaking or canoeing, go cycling along one of the many cycle paths in the area or explore the stunning bushwalking trail.
Kids of all ages will have fun in the walkways, flying foxes and the wild rollercoaster zip line known as Crazy Rider amongst the tree tops at TreeTop Adventure Park, in Ourimbah State Forest near Yarramalong. The family can also camp in nearby Watagan State Forest and take easy bushwalks along the forest's beautiful Rock Lily and Lyrebird walking tracks.
Take a trail ride through picturesque bushland at Glenworth Valley Horse Riding, Australia's largest horse-riding centre. Set amongst 3,000 acres of wilderness, Glenworth Valley Outdoor Adventures offers plenty of diverse ways in which to see and experience the beauty of the Central Coast.
Spend an afternoon kayaking along the waterways of the Glenworth Valley, head out on a quad bike adventure through untouched bushland or savour spectacular views of the area while abseiling.
If you’re keen on diving, check out the Ex-HMAS Adelaide Shipwreck. Located just 1.4 kilometres from the Skillion at Terrigal and 1.8 kilometres from Avoca Beach, this artificial reef is a world class dive attraction with stunning underwater scenery.
Surrounding areas also have plenty of family adventure options, such as sailing and paddleboating on Avoca Lake. The kids can also take on the spirited, yet family friendly, jet-pack at Mt Penang Gardens or Archery Tag near Toowoon Bay.
Or jump aboard a segway ride with Segway Central Coast, where friendly guides personally train you before you take an adventure packed ride around the historic Mt Penang Parklands.
Not enough? Gather your family and friends together for a few hours of Glenworth laser skirmish fun, or learn essential survival skills with a half or full day course from the Bear Grylls Survival Academy.
