The CENTRAL COAST
The Central Coast of NSW is the bridging of two cities. Sydney rapidly spreading north and Newcastle slowly edging south. Wyong is already a commute ‘suburb’ to Sydney, just like Gosford and Woy Woy, but not just yet for the outer and southern suburb of Newcastle that is Swansea, just 40/50k to the north.
The Central Coast of NSW is the fastest growing area in NSW, and is destined to do so for many years to come. Proximity to first-rate services, weather, beaches plus lifestyle is driving the growth. A very nice location is the Central Coast of NSW.
The Central Coast has an approximate population of 299,000 making it the third largest region in NSW. Also, the Central Coast is a popular tourist destination and a popular area for retirement. As a result, the cultural identity of the region is distinct from that of the large and diverse metropolis of Sydney as well as the Hunter region, with its mining, heavy industry and port.
Owing to the very rapid development, there is very little of the ‘old’ central coast left. The Anglican Church in Kincumber (a suburb) is the only century old building, and at this time the Lakeside Hotel at The Entrance is the only mid century building.
The Central Coast is a holiday resort that as a region is growing rapidly. Therefore this is a great place to visit, but not unlike other resort areas in OZ is significantly reliant on sunny days to carry the moment.
