After more than 100 days of lockdown, the countdown begins to visit your fave Central Coast venues as they reopen this October!
Many amazing businesses across the region are now inviting you to plug a special date in the diary to visit their venue this month - not only to support local, but to enjoy the finer things in life once again.

Ready to plan your debut back into society? Each of the Central Coast businesses listed below have announced they are ready to take bookings from 11 October onwards.

Simply browse the reopening dates, find your favourite venue and click through to book. Then all you need to do is count down the moments until you're chatting over a flat white under the palm trees, sipping on a cosmo with the girls, browsing local markets, riding a horse through the hinterland, or dining waterside with 5 luxury courses to get through!
