About the Central Coast

Ideally located on the northern fringe of Sydney and just half an hour drive from Newcastle, the Central Coast offers one of the best places in Australia to live and work.

It has a rich diversity of landscapes with the seaside towns of Gosford, Avoca, Terrigal, The Entrance, Toowoon Bay and Bateau Bay and more than four times the waterfront of Sydney Harbour! Its pristine beaches and the extensive coastal estuary of Tuggerah Lakes are complemented by beautiful national parks and a lush hinterland featuring rural villages.

The abundant natural beauty and extensive waterfront of the area provides the perfect playground for nature and water-based leisure experiences. Deep rural valleys and an unspoilt mountain backdrop frame heritage pockets and a thriving urban centre with dining and retail.

Our “This is the Life” campaign is a story of transformation. It tells stories about the things people love about the Central Coast and the remarkable people doing remarkable things that are transforming the Coast over many years into a rich, vibrant and buzzing coastal community.

The Central Coast has the best of all worlds and those who live and work here are the Central Coast’s proudest ambassadors. We hope you enjoy their stories and take the time to re-shape your own perceptions of the Coast.

This is the Life. This is the Central Coast.
