The Entrance Travel Guide: 7 reviews and 19 photos

Pelican capital of Australia

Situated where Tuggerah Lake meets the Pacific Ocean, just an hour north of Sydney on the NSW Central Coast, The Entrance has long been a holiday haven for families and retirees. Lately, however, it's been shrugging off its sleepy persona to emerge as a popular weekend and daytrip destination.

Not that The 'new' Entrance, as it's being called, has gone upmarket. It's still a friendly coastal town that's down-to-earth, or rather down-to-water, since all life revolves around the town's two jewels: the Lake and the Ocean.

The Entrance might be close enough to Sydney and Newcastle to make a daytrip feasible, but as you gaze over the lake at the silhouettes of fishing boats and pelicans against a backdrop of changing colours in the still water, you realise it's far enough away to leave all your cares behind.
