Less than two hours north of Sydney is the Central Coast, aka the ‘coast with the most’!
If you thought it was all sleepy villages, then think again. If it’s an adventure you seek, just head on out with Terrigal Ocean Tours, aboard their high performance RIB. Terrigal Tours run a range of tours, including whale watching (in season) and general tours that encompass the natural beauty, and the many historical stories, found around the local shores and at sea. If you’re lucky you’ll get up close to the seal colony, living off Pittawater and perhaps catch a glimpse of a fairy penguin. And, at the end of the tour, enjoy a fast-paced, adrenaline-filled jet boat ride that will have you hanging onto your seats in delight!
For lovers of two of life’s great pleasures, chocolate and wine, why not combine your passion for both at one of the state’s most unique wineries, Firescreek Botanical Winery. Over twenty-five award-winning wines are produced on site, incorporating many of the botanicals grown on the sprawling and delightful grounds, using small-scale organic farming methods. And why not enjoy a wine AND chocolate tasting tour, featuring the wines and a range of delicious, gourmet chocolates.
If you love a stylish beach house, you’ll swoon for the Central Coast Stays Toowoon Beach House! The main house consists of 5 bedrooms, two bathrooms, two large living areas, a modern open-plan kitchen, perfect for entertaining, and a games room with a pool table. There is a second dwelling, to the rear of the property, with an additional two bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen and living area. With the beach just a short stroll down the road, you’ll never want to leave this stunning abode. The kitchen is large and highly functional, but if you feel like eating out, for brekky, brunch, or lunch, Flour & Co. is just across the road. This local bakery produces delicious baked goods, and one of the best breakfast burritos, anywhere on the coast!
