More than just fish and chips

Holiday with Kids - - Central Coast, Nsw -

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.

Home among the gum trees

Cen­tral Coast Hol­i­day Parks have four great lo­ca­tions, all within 20 min­utes of The En­trance,
