5 Reasons to visit the Central Coast

Back to Blog

The Central Coast region of Australia is located between Sydney and the township of Newcastle. It is home to a number of attractive coastal villages, beginning at the entrance to the Hawkesbury River and ending at the south end of Lake Macquarie. There are a great many reasons why you should plan a visit to the Central Coast, but here are the five main ones.


1. Getting up close and personal with the wildlife


The Australian Reptile Park is the place to visit to really study native Australian mammals as well as a number of other species such as crocodiles, snakes, spiders and much more. This park can be found about one hour’s drive from Sydney, and there’s a lot to do for the whole family. There are even barbeque facilities so you can pack up a picnic and spend the whole day there to make sure you don’t miss any of the organised feeding displays and interactive exhibits.


2. Skydiving and scuba diving


If you are looking for a little extra out of your holiday and want to get a birds’ eye view of the area, why not try tandem skydiving? There are trained and qualified experts who will be happy to take you up and support you through 60 seconds of freefall over the Central Coast coastline, before releasing the parachute and gently floating to earth with you while you take in some truly stunning scenery.


Alternatively, if you prefer to dive in the water, then about two kilometres from Avoca Beach is where you can dive down to the Ex-HMAS Adelaide. This artificial reef attracts visitors from all over the world and is a must see for those who love scuba diving.


3. Visiting the beaches


The Central Coast is well known for its beaches and inlets, so make a day of it and head out there for some sun, sea and surf. Top surfing beaches can be found at Terrigal and Soldiers Beach, Norah Head, while the family friendly beaches include Ocean Beach and Toowoon Bay, Umina.


4. Retail therapy


There is enormous range and variety when it comes to shopping in the Central Coast area. In addition to the regular markets showcasing everything from arts and craft wares to local produce and vintage stalls, Gosford also has a number of retail outlets for all your fashion and food requirements.


5. Camping


To really explore the Central Coast with its great expanse of marvellous bushland and beautiful beaches, you do need plenty of time and the freedom to move around and stay in a number of different places. Camping is one of Australia’s favourite pastimes, so bring the whole family along for the trip. Choose from the many holiday parks or campsites that can be found from Gosford and The Entrance right through to Ettalong Beach, Bateau Bay and Norah Head.


Direct Transfer (e.g. airport, hotels) Hourly Hire (e.g. wedding, wine tours) 


Unfortunately, due to the current circumstances surrounding the current attempt to control the wide-spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the government have now implemented certain procedures to assist in the reduction of possible transmission amongst travellers and drivers.



Vehicle Sanitisation  &  Cleaning Procedures:

All vehicles are sanitised after every transfer is performed. We are focused on the strict cleaning of highly touched surfaces. These areas include surfaces such as door handles, window switches, seat belts, head rests, steering wheel, radio and air-conditioning controls, window interiors and much more. We use both antibacterial spray and wipes to help reduce the possible spread of any bacteria from one client to another. Hand sanitiser is also now available in all vehicles for client use.



Reservation Changes  &  Cancellations due to COVID-19:

As per current advice and guidelines provided by both Fair Trading NSW and by the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (A.C.C.C.), any transfer bookings made for a future date that have been cancelled or suspended (including those by any Airlines/Cruise Lines) because of a COVID-19 related issue (e.g. Public Health Orders, regional lockdowns, cancelled third party events due to capacity restrictions etc), can only be eligible for a full travel credit of the amount paid, which is valid for 3 years from the date of affected travel. All changes are to be advised as soon as possible by email to bookings@highclasslimousines.com.au”.
(PLEASE NOTE: Unfortunately, no guarantee can be given that any specific booked vehicle may be available on a future date. All re-scheduled bookings where travel credits are redeemed are pending vehicle availability.)



Face Masks are now COMPULSORY:

Newly implemented restrictions state that both drivers and travelling passengers are both required to wear a face mask during any transfer.

Should a passenger not be wearing a mask, a driver may refuse to provide service as it may be a safety risk. This does not apply to

  • children under 12

  • persons with a physical or mental health illness or condition, or disability that makes wearing a fitted face covering unsuitable including, for example, a skin condition, an intellectual disability, autism or trauma.




For all transfers to/from both domestic and international ports of entry into and exit from Australia (this includes both cruises and airports!).
