About Central CoastWith its golden beaches the Central Coast is a great weekend escape or an ideal holiday destination. One hours drive north of Sydney, the Central Coast offers endless possibilities - whether you want to go abseiling, horse riding, surfing, scuba diving, or just relax with a good book. Avoca, Terrigal, Wamberal and McMaster’s Beach are no longer the sleepy little fishing villages they used to be. You’ll find luxury hotels, cosmopolitan restaurants and boutiques beside long white sandy beaches. This coastal expanse is now far more chic and extensive. Further south you’ll find Ettalong, Patonga, Umina, Woy Woy and Gosford. With a unique blend of attractions there is much to see and do in this wondrous Brisbane Water land-and-seascape. This is an area where a pleasant stroll becomes an idyllic and nostalgic experience. Golden beaches, sheltered tidal inlets, pockets of sub-tropical rainforest and the Brisbane Water National Park offer a host of recreational pursuits in the great outdoors.
