Central Coast, Sydney: 13 reviews and 17 photos

 
 

Old Sydney Town is an hour's drive north of Sydney and is a re-creation
of the earliest days of the Colony of New South Wales, spanning the years 1788 to 1810. After careful research building commenced in 1972. You can step back into history wandering the streets with the townspeople garbed in the clothes of the period. You will see soldiers on parade, pistol duels, cannons firing and be part of a trial day of the convicts. There are craft stores of the period and eating places.

Unfortunately, I think the park has now closed.

Pacific Hwy, Somersby (Near Gosford)
