The Central Coast New South Wales has large areas of protected bushland to explore, or take a kayak tour on one of the many pristine waterways. For something unusual, hire a houseboat and cruise the Hawkesbury River enjoying the drama of sheer sandstone cliffs and tranquil rainforest. The Central Coast offers a holiday with endless possibilities - whether you want to go horse riding, surfing or scuba diving, or just relax with a good book. Even if you only stay for the weekend, you won't be in a hurry to leave.
With its golden beaches for surfing, swimming, diving or walking, the Central Coast is a great weekend escape or an ideal holiday destination. Terrigal is a popular beachside resort offering good surfing beaches, boutique style accommodation, shops and fine restaurants. Further north is The Entrance - which is famous for relaxing fun family holidays.
