Central Coast

The Central Coast of NSW is a prime holiday destination, boasting lush bushland, golden beaches and pristine waterways that delight thousands of visitors every year. With its abundant natural beauty and beautiful coastal townships, you’re sure to find your slice of paradise and want to keep coming back.

The choice of amazing beaches is practically endless, with Terrigal, Avoca and Umina Beaches just a few of the most popular strips of sand and surf. There’s also plenty of opportunity to get back to nature, exploring bushland in areas such as Bouddi National Park and Strickland State Forest.

A vibrant hub, Gosford is the main town on the Central Coast – but there are many idyllic spots to stay awhile, such as Terrigal, The Entrance and Avoca Beach. Accommodation is plentiful, with everything from cosy bed & breakfasts to parks and sites for camping enthusiasts.

And with attractions for the kids like the Australian Reptile Park or Central Coast Marine Discovery Centre, the Central Coast will provide an unforgettable experience for young and old.
