    Let the landscapes do the talking on the Central Coast NSW

    Just when you thought New South Wales couldn't wow you again, you swap out the wonders of Sydney Harbour to head north to the fabled region known as the Central Coast. Running the whole length of land between the inlets of the Hawkesbury River to the surf-washed marinas of Newcastle, it's a place of dramatic headlands, moss-covered rainforests, happy-go-lucky beach bum towns, eucalyptus-dressed mountain peaks, and glistening ocean lagoons. Central Coast NSW vacation rentals will put you right in the middle of it all.

    Pacific enjoyments on the Central Coast NSW

    Look towards to the ocean to really feel the pulse of the Central Coast NSW. Every summer the beaches there switch on like magnets, attracting filings in the shape of long-haired surfers to their Pacific swells. Others are built for the sunbathers, with golden sands bathed in warmth. Others give way to the winding Hawkesbury River for sailors and kayakers. Want to get the heart thumping? Consider an acrobatic flyover tour of the whole region – you'll see Sydney unfold to the south. If you want to unwind more, spas and yoga studios abound.

    Beaches, heritage and peaks in Central Coast NSW

    Avoca Beach beckons with its whitecapped rollers, a playground for surfers and jet skiers. There's the Henry Kendall Cottage with its history exhibits related to the life and times of the Central Coast's pioneer-come-poet. There's The Entrance channel, where shimmering Tuggerah Beach zips along the dunes, intriguing heritage walks reveal local tales, and the Ocean Baths offer a splash pool right on the edge of the Pacific. There's kaleidoscopically colorful Mt Penang Gardens, dressed in fuchsia heath and baobab-type trees. Or, you can get Central Coast NSW vacation rentals in the mountains, up where the wild peaks of Watagan dominate.

    Working on the tan on the Central Coast NSW

    The heat really turns up over the Central Coast when the Aussie summer swings around in December, January, and February. Those are some of the best times to go in search of Central Coast NSW vacation rentals close to the beaches, if only to work on your tan and splash in the warming Pacific swells. November, March, and April are also great times to come here, often with fewer people jostling for the best stays, and continuing good weather to boot.

    Central Coast NSW – a real Australian garden

    The Central Coast is Australia writ small. It has golden beaches such as Avoca. It has roaring Pacific Ocean swells, where surfers out of Sydney carve the tubes. It has the rainforest-dressed reaches of the Watagan Mountains inland, where eucalyptus groves hide wombats and koala bears. Some of the natural jewels include the Brisbane Water National Park – where ancient Aboriginal markings emboss the sandstone canyons – and the Belmont Wetlands, where the high dunes and forests are a real birding hotspot.
