The Entrance, Australia

The Entrance is a small tourist town located on New South Wales' central coast of Australia that has been a getaway town for over a century. The town named itself the 'Pelican Capital' of Australia. You can enjoy pristine beaches, the relaxed atmosphere, outdoor dining and long walks along the sea. Watch the pelicans feed along the waterfront. The name of the town comes from the narrow channel that connects Tuggerah Lake to the sea.
