More than just fish and chips
Westfield Tuggerah has all the attractions of a city-sized shopping centre but in a country setting; it’s even located next to a farm. If you feel like shopping in the fresh air be sure to check out The Entrance Organic Food Markets, every Saturday in Memorial Park, or the Lions Club Market on Sundays for knick-knacks and previously loved treasures.
The Central Coast also has an abundance of bush walks. There are trails for all levels including the elementary Norah Head Light House walk which gives a combined dose of nature and history. A slightly more difficult track can be found in Wyrrabalong National Park near Norah Head, on the Tuggerah Lake Vista and Rainforest track. The turnaround point provides beautiful views of the Tuggerah Lake district, while the rainforest track surrounds you with cabbage palms. The Redgum trail offers a longer, while still moderate, walk through Wyrrabalong National Park and features viewing platforms and lots of bending and twisting red gums along the way.
For an adventurous day out, head to Ourimbah State Forest for a little Tarzanstyle action at the TreeTop Adventure Park. The park offers courses for all ages (three years and over) and all fitness levels, and all children’s courses are fully supervised. The Central Coast has a lot to offer for visiting young foodies. Whether you are after a steak, salad or seafood you’ll find it at its freshest and best along this stretch of sunshine. While you’ll find excellent fish and chip shops on almost every corner, you will also find some of the best seafood restaurants, such as Latitude 33 Lobster Shack or The Waters Edge Seafood Restaurant – both in The Entrance.
