ABOUT THIS REGION The Central Coast is an Australian peri-urban region in New South Wales, located on the coast north of Sydney and south of Lake Macquarie. The Central Coast has an approximate population of 321,500, growing at 1% p.a. making it the third largest urban area in New South Wales and the ninth largest urban area in Australia. Geographically, the Central Coast is generally considered to include the region bounded by Broken Bay at the mouth of the Hawkesbury River in the south, the Watagan Mountains in the west and the southern end of Lake Macquarie south of Newcastle in the north. The Central Coast includes a mix of bays and inlets, pristine beaches, lakes and lush hinterland. While Gosford is the main centre, picturesque villages along the coastline - such as Pearl Beach, Ettalong, Hardys Bay, Avoca Beach, Terrigal, Bateau Bay, Toowoon Bay, The Entrance , Norah Head and Forresters Beach - are popular holiday spots. Don't miss the beautiful Somersby Falls in Brisbane Water National Park and the secluded beaches and bays of Bouddi National Park. Crackneck Lookout in Wyrrabalong National Park is a great vantage point for whale watching.
