Central Coast Honeymoons
Start the rest of your life together in style in this special corner of NSW
Prestigious retreats, secluded tiny houses, private yachts and hatted restaurants are just some of the ways to embrace a Central Coast honeymoon.
Where to stay
A member of Luxury Lodges of Australia Pretty Beach House has four elegant and secluded pavilions in Bouddi National Park. Soak up the serenity and views over Broken Bay and dial up the romance on a secret location picnic made for two.
Share an outdoor spa with your honey at the Deck and Spa tiny house where you can cross a log bridge into a rainforest adventure and meet the resident wallabies, turtles and ducks. Nature lovers can also book in for a stay at the Waterfall Springs Retreat and Wildlife Sanctuary where the Deluxe King and Queen Bath Suites include two person free standing baths with wildlife views, private patios and gas log fireplaces.
Meanwhile the Nest at Blue Bay is a love nest between two beautiful Central Coast bays. Blue Bay and Toowoon Bay are both under a five minute stroll from this stylish stay where bikes, picnic rugs and baskets are provided.
What to do
Set sail on a private yacht for the day and keep an eye out for Australian Fur Seals, dolphins and fairy penguins as you make your way to secluded swimming spots at beautiful beaches. One day isn’t enough? Sail Central Coast can also create multi day packages where you can have the yacht all to yourself at night.
Disconnect from human life on the Bouddi Coastal Walk where you could see wildflowers and whales, and are guaranteed incredible views no matter what the day. Bring your swimmers to cool off at a beach stop along this 8.5km walk which is considered one of the most spectacular on the Central Coast.
When you’re ready to come out of your bubble and see people again the 7.6km Coast to Lake Walk is a cocktail of coastal views, swimmable beaches, tempting cafes and boutiques around The Entrance, while the Laycock Street Community Theatre in Gosford offers a chance to catch a show with everything from touring international and national artists to a show by the Gosford Musical Society.
What to eat
Award winning restaurants and cosy cafes are among the many first meals you can share as a married couple on a Central Coast honeymoon.
Top restaurant choices include The Cowrie in Terrigal where fine sustainable dining comes with panoramic ocean views and includes a locally sourced plant based menu, and Osteria Il Coccia where Napoli born chef Nicola Coccia now offers a chef’s table experience at their new location in Broken Bay.
Award winning chef Sean Connolly transforms local ingredients into mouth watering Mediterranean dishes at The Wild Flower Bar & Dining at Bells at Killcare, while the new Koolewong Marina is home to Boathouse Bar and Dining where you can share freshly shucked oysters and local seafood with a side of Brisbane Water views.
And when you want a great Aussie brunch but aren’t in a rush to get out into the day, Bellyfish Café serves all day brunch sourced from local suppliers including Brasserie Bread artisan sourdough and Kombuchazest kombucha, and if you’re lucky you may just see some dolphins or whales from your outside seat in the sun.
