Toowoon Bay

For a relaxing beach holiday, Toowoon Bay is a lovely destination on the Central Coast of NSW. The beautiful Toowoon Bay Beach is popular for swimming, surfing, snorkelling and fishing. Nearby are more wonderful natural attractions, including the Wyrrabalong National Park and Tuggerah Lake.

On a peninsula just south of The Entrance, Toowoon Bay is about 80 minutes’ drive north from Sydney and about 70 minutes south from Newcastle. There is public transport as well. You can take a train from Central Station in Sydney and alight at Gosford or Tuggerah for a bus to Toowoon Bay.

You’ll find a range of accommodation options, from camping and caravanning in a holiday park to a beachside rainforest retreat for that perfect romantic escape. At Kims Beachside Retreat there are luxury bungalows and spa villas overlooking the white sandy beach and the shimmering blue bay.

Toowoon Bay - Central Coast

There are rocky reefs near both ends of Toowoon Bay Beach, a patrolled beach that curves 700 metres. Immediately north is pretty Blue Bay Beach. Immediately south, and connected by a sandy tombolo, is enchanting Little Bay Beach, where gentle waves roll onto the soft sandy shoreline.

Recreational fishing is popular. Cast a line from a beach for bream and whiting, and the rocky reefs attract blackfish and mulloway. There are great beach and rock fishing locations too in the northern and southern sections of Wyrrabalong. Please read these fishing safety tips before your adventure.

At the rear of Toowoon Bay Beach is Swadling Park, a charming picnic spot with barbecue facilities and a playground. Over on the Tuggerah Lake side of the peninsula is the Long Jetty Foreshore Reserve, another pretty picnic spot and home to the iconic Long Jetty, the longest jetty in NSW.

There is a bicycle path along the lake foreshore, and the shallow waterway is popular for water sports such as sailing, waterskiing, fishing, kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding. The estuary is also an important habitat for birds, including sharp-tailed sandpipers, black swans and pelicans.
