Ideally located on the northern fringe of Sydney, the Central Coast has a rich diversity of landscapes with seaside towns, lakes, pristine national parks, lush hinterland and more than four times the waterfront of Sydney Harbour. The abundant natural beauty of the area is combined with thriving urban centres and bespoke dining experiences.
Combined with a mild, sunny climate, a busy calendar of cultural and sporting events, it is easy to see why the area has an enviable lifestyle and has long been one of the best known holiday locations on Australia's east coast.
Plan your Central Coast holiday break through the Visit Central Coast site.
