Introducing Social Spaces 2022

Four Central Coast town centres will come alive this April and May at Social Spaces! A series of pop-up activations and school holiday activities will bring the local community together to create vibrant and engaging spaces across Gosford, Wyong, The Entrance and Toukley.

If you're local, join your community in revealing the hidden treasures and spaces of the Central Coast with a wide range of family-friendly community events, pop-up dining experiences, School Holiday activities and seasonal entertainment. If you're visiting our amazing destination, these events will give you a great taste of the Central Coast!

Social Spaces is set to bring the Coast’s town centres to life from Sunday 10 April to Sunday 29 May, offering you the opportunity to explore amazing local food, kids’ activities, roving entertainment and more.

What's on...

School holidays

Activities to suit the whole family including a fun-filled Petting Zoo, Lazer Skirmish, Mobile Games Truck, Roving Easter Bunny and more.

Pop-up dining experiences

If you enjoy great food, great music, festoon lighting, picnic rugs and great company, then look no further. Bring your friends and family along and enjoy some live entertainment and an array of delicious dinner options offered from local restaurants and businesses in your local town centre. These will be scattered throughout the Gosford, Wyong, The Entrance and Toukley Town Centres in May.

Heritage walks

Keen to tour on your own terms? There is a self-guided Wyong Heritage Walk available around the Wyong town centre, with signposted stops to help you step back into the shoes of locals in the 19th century and an audio guide available for free online.

Live Entertainment

There's nothing quite like listening to live music when roaming the streets and visiting your favourite cafes, restaurants and pubs. Throughout the months of April and May acoustic performances will be scattered throughout the Town Centres of Toukley, The Entrance, Gosford and Wyong.
