From headland to hinterland, you'll love the Central Coast

The Central Coast of New South Wales is a vibrant place to live, work and play, with a new story around every corner. Steeped in natural beauty, we've got sustainability at heart as one of Australia's first certified ECO Destinations, awarded First Place globally in sustainable destination management. Fringed by 40+ beaches, shaped by valuable waterways, and hemmed with lush wilderness, we're just 90 minutes north of Sydney or south of Newcastle. Our slice of east coast paradise is home to a nationally awarded gourmet foodie scene, array of coastal, hinterland and aquatic treasures, diverse art trails, creative communities, and immersive cultural experiences.
