One of east coast Australia’s best kept secrets, Central Coast – less than two hours’ drive north of Sydney – is an area popular with Aussies for their own holidays and weekend breaks.
Home to relaxed seaside villages such as Terrigal and Avoca; plenty of secluded beaches; stunning stops along the Hawkesbury River; and a great base for the wine country of Hunter Valley and dolphin cruises of Port Stephens, Central Coast makes for a great addition to the end of a busy Australia tour before flying home from Sydney, or indeed as a stop off on your coastal self-drive through New South Wales.
Avoca is close to family-friendly beaches such as Macmasters, and neighbouring Terrigal is the place to venture to for scrumptious beachside dining. If you’re a thrill-seeker, don’t miss the Treetop Crazy Rider while you’re in the area – the world’s longest zip-line – and we think all visitors should stay at the hugely romantic Bells at Killcare; an adult-only boutique hotel surrounded by nature. Or if you’re travelling with children, you must take them to The Entrance – 30 minutes north of Bells – for the daily feeding of the pelicans at Pelican Plaza.
Our Travel Specialists also suggest a stay at Broken Bay and Bouddi National Park’s exclusive guesthouse: Pretty Beach House. Here you can arrive by seaplane and dine on exceptional celebrity-chef created menus.
