4-Day - short stay

Wyong is a heritage town in the north of the Central Coast, framed by Tuggerah Lakes, Wyong River banks, and the Watagan Mountains. With its own performing arts theatre, modern cafés and restaurants, racecourse, golf course and artfully restored buildings from yesteryear, Wyong is embracing its role as the region's low-key creative town centre.

Photo opportunity: Wyong is a gateway to the Central Coast hinterland dotted with farmscapes and valley views. Head to Yarramalong and Dooralong valleys, or take the rural roads to Kulnura.
