Fun Starts Here!

The Winter months are perfect for exploring the Central Coast of New South Wales, Australia. Just one hour's drive north of Sydney, you will find yourself in a destination that has a distinctive change of place and pace, perfect for a short break or a longer escape.

Beaches, wildlife and wilderness - all the natural elements come together on the Central Coast. At the essence of the region is a world of beautiful coastlines, golden beaches, alluring lakes and pristine National Parks. These treasured natural assets stretch across the six regions of the Central Coast, each with their own unique qualities, energy and style.

Get out and about in the winter months and explore the Central Coast. A must do activity at this time of year is whale watching, as whales pass up the coastline there are some great vantage points to view these majestic animals, our National Parks have many great lookouts and walks.

If you are staying for a few days or just passing through don't forget to check out our events page to see all that is happening across the coast.

Sun, surf, sand, and so much more ... we invite you to discover it for yourself this Winter.
