Central Coast Information

The Central Coast of New South Wales, Australia defines the area between Lake Macquarie and Sydney. Despite the name, the region actually refers to a stretch of urban sprawl that contains some 300,000 people. Subject to a phenomenal rise in population growth of late, terms like “sustainable development” and “water conservation” have become a regular part of the local lexicon.

Potential threats of suburban expansion aside, the Central Coast offers many notable points of interest. A location astride the Sydney-Newcastle Freeway certainly helps ferry a steady stream of tourists to coastal suburbs like Ettalong Beach, The Entrance and Terrigal. While resorts up and down the coast offer typical holiday fare, the veritable charm of the Central Coast comes through in places like the Australian Walkabout Wildlife Park, Bouddi National Park and Lion Island Nature Reserve. Last but not least, when you visit the Central Coast, remember to pack your surfboard and golf clubs.
