The Itinerary

Lots to love in Kincumber

Spend today getting to know the little known town of Kincumber on the Central Coast. Charmingly tucked away between the region's most popular spots, you can hop from revived post office cafe, to a boutique shopping destination, up to a mountain top, down to a micro-brewery, and onto a family-friendly pub! All in a day's adventure at Kincumber.

Breakfast

Café postcard

Drop by the charming Kincumber Post Café, officially the area’s local post office from 1945 to 1990! Serving fresh, house-baked goods with a smile, you will instantly feel like you’ve found a neighbourhood gem. 

 

Morning

Pocket full of posies

Catch a glimpse of the weekly mixed posies created by Bree & Hollie right next door to your morning cafe. More than a florist, The Petal Sisters is a boutique lifestyle store in Kincumber selling artisan arrangements, fashion and homewares too. A floral rainbow to start the day with!

 

Mid-Morning
