The Central Coast is an idyllic area just north of Sydney, around an hours drive. The area broadly takes in the area from Gosford to Newcastle, and the many lakes and coastal areas along it. This region is very popular as a nearby affordable holiday destination for Sydneysiders and international visitors alike.
The region is essentially made up of a string of villages ad towns most lined by rail and road along the coast. Some of the most popular holiday spots include The Entrance, on the beach at the entrance to Lake Macquarie. Ettalong Beach further south is also a great beach destination with serviced apartments and hotels available.
Attractions on the coast include the many beach markets held most weekends, The Australian Reptile Park, Norah Head Lighthouse and the Treetop Adventure Park! The Central Coast also has a great selection of restaurants and shopping, including Erina Fair and Westfields Tuggerah to explore.
