Central Coast in review
About an hour north of Sydney, you will find the Central Coast – but with all of its natural beauty and wildlife, you might as well call it a “nature coast”!
The Central Coast is home to some great beaches. At Ettalong Beach, you can soak up the sun while you take in the fantastic views of nearby Lion Island and Broken Bay. Or, if you’re more into action, see what the fishermen are up to. Even if you don’t want to grab your pole and try to catch something, you can watch the pros, as Ettalong Beach is home to a giant wharf.
If you want to try your hand at surfing, the place to do it is in Terrigal. Not only is it one of the biggest towns on the Central Coast, but its beaches also have some great waves! But beaches aren’t the only thing you’ll find in Terrigal. The town also has a couple of lagoons where you can try to spot some of the 180 species that call the Central Coast home.
For even more unique animals, head to the Australian Reptile Park, or go feed the pelicans at Memorial Park.
If you want to spend some time swimming with the local wildlife, the best place to do it is at Avoca Lake.
If you’re looking for a great place to stay, you can’t really go wrong in this region. Most of the hotels on the Central Coast are lined up and down the waterfront, so it is easy to find a room that suits your needs.
