"The Entrance north of..." Central Coast Tip by carstenj

Central Coast, Sydney: 13 reviews and 17 photos


<b>The Entrance</b> north of Hawkesbury River has great beaches with huge flocks of pelicans. The <b>Reptile Park </b>close to Gordon has a range of native fauna that you wouldn't see that easily going walkabout (picture). Going down the south coast past <b>Wollongong</b> and you will find beaches and National Parks with heaps of wildlife, including kangaroos and parakeets.
Main point: Get out of the CBD and see the suburbs as they have a life of their own. Go to <b>Leichardt, Balmain, Mosman, Newtown, Neutral Bay, Double Bay, Coogee Beach and even Parramatta</b>.
There are also many tiny picnic spots around the harbour, like <b>Strickland House, Steel Pt.</b> and <b>Vaucluse Park</b> in Vaucluse.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
