Camping

Highlights

With beautiful scenery and activities aplenty, the Central Coast is the perfect place for a camping or caravanning holiday. The Central Coast is made up of six distinct regions, each of which has its own personality, character and unique drawcard.

As an accommodation option camping and caravanning gives you the freedom to travel and experience the essence of each region, and to set down your tent or caravan and really get to know the place and its people.
