Central Coast Holidays Travel Destinations

Woy Woy

Named from the aboriginal word for water, Woy Woy is almost completely surrounded by the lake-like Brisbane Water. One of the oldest towns in the region, first land grants being in 1794, Woy Woy was a popular holiday spot for Sydneysiders at the turn of the century. These days Woy Woy could nearly be considered on outer suburb of Sydney. While retaining its small town charm it is still popular with visitors and a haven for boating and fishing enthusiasts. Woy Woy can be reached from Sydney by train on the Sydney - Newcastle

Avoca Beach - MacMasters
The Southern end of the Central Coast has some of the prettiest beaches on the coast. Little Beach just north of Bouddi National Park, a beautiful beach surrounded by bush but not very safe for swimming. Just to the north is Copacabana settled in between hills, a great beach for swimming, the northern point popular with surfboard riders. Avoca is a small resort town which sits in between a lake and beach of the same name. This relaxed town is a great place for a reasonably priced summer holiday.

The Entrance
At the opening of Tuggerah Lake to the ocean sits the aptly named town "The Entrance". This is one of the more popular spots for visitors, especially in the summer months, there is a great range of accommodation with all tourist facilities. Tuggerah Lake is a top spot for fishing and prawning, and the beach which stretches north for 8km is just perfect for surfers and sunlovers.

Hundreds of commuters make the 160km round trip to Sydney by train from this town at the head of Brisbane Water. The area around Gosford and Wyong has many holiday resorts and amenities for vacationers and is an excellent place for fishing, waterskiing, windsurfing and surfing.

Two hours drive north of Sydney on the new F3 Freeway, Newcastle began as a convict colony of a convict colony and is now dominated by the BHP steelworks. But there is much more to Newcastle providing a diversity of attractions from art galleries, beaches and scuba diving to mountain climbing or even discovering the wildlife of nightlife.

The city has many historic 19th century buildings some of which have been recently restored to their former glory. Fort Scrathley has good views over the city and houses the Maritime Museum and Military Museum. It is also one of the only places in Australia to have fired its guns at enemies- at a Japanese submarine in 1942. Beautiful Lake Macquarie is to the south with a huge saltwater lake which boasts a picturesque eucalypt lined foreshore spanning 174km and is popular for its safe beaches and magnificent mountain range whilst being a mecca for all types water sports.
