Kasey Chambers, Insiders’ Secrets


Taking the kids to the beach: We fill our bellies with sushi from Sushi Canape in Terrigal, get some takeaway frozen yoghurt and head to Terrigal beach for the arvo…it’s one of my favourite things to do.

Raw is best: I love the amazing food at The Raw Deli in Woy Woy especially after I’ve been on tour… Food that is good for the soul. Gnostic Corner is a regular stop for me every week to tap back in to my positive energy and remind myself that I live in a beautiful part of the world.

Best bar: A Sunday arvo at Pocket Bar in Terrigal with a lazy drink, sliders and live music is hard to beat.

On your skates: At least once a week I take the kids to Tuggerah to Slam Factory Indoor Skate Park, our favourite.

Sweet treats: We love to visit The Entrance where we start off with Gotham Coffee, the waterfront water park and, if the kids are good while I shop in Ardi La for clothes, I reward them with lollies from The Lolly Barn…ha!

Shopping action: I love walking along the main strip of Long Jetty, browsing (and spending) in all the amazing vintage stores.

Best market: On the fourth Sunday of every month, Avoca Beachside Markets has some of my favourite market stalls plus it promotes local live music.

Team spirit: During the AFL football season, we try to get to as many games to support the Terrigal Avoca Panthers when I can cheer on my son and his teammates.

Best vibes: My fave Central Coast band, Grizzlee Train, has Brandon Dodd on guitar/vocals and Josh Dufficy on drums/harmonica. They’re not part of my touring band but still play local gigs on the Coast. I try to get to as many of their gigs as I can and jam with them. You can often find them playing at the Avoca Beach Hotel.
