Coast profiled as a great family destination

Destination Central Coast has partnered with Holidays with Kids, Australia’s number one family travel magazine, to showcase some of the best family-friendly things to do on the Central Coast, just in time for Summer.

The article, called 25 Things to do on the Central Coast with Kids, was written by Travel writer Jennifer Ennion, who has lived locally for decades.

It features much-loved destinations from the northern areas of the Coast including The Entrance, Tree Top Adventure Park, Iris Lodge Alpacas and Toowoon Bay.

“The first thing you notice about the Central Coast is that it is a region of great natural beauty,” the article said.

“No matter where you stay on the Central Coast, you can expect the kids to come home with sand in their hair, happy smiles and ice-cream stains on their shirts.”

The Entrance is described as a “celebrated holiday hotspot, popular with families seeking sun, calm waters and surf all year round”.

The article tells eager readers that “At Tree Top Adventure Park, Ourimbah, you’ll be strapping in safely to climb, weave and fly through the towering gum trees”.

Toukley is pitched to readers as one of the region’s up-and-coming destinations.

“Once overlooked, this suburb is getting serious attention thanks to the revamped Beachcomber Hotel and Resort…No longer just a pub, this place is stunning and is the perfect spot for a Hamptons-style lunch.

“While parents enjoy the gin- and saffron-cured kingfish and Baja fish tacos, children will happily be distracted by the petting farm, playground or school holiday farm tours.”

And Toowoon Bay gets a mention as “sensational for beginner surfing and swimming at a patrolled beach”.

The region’s farm gate and farm stay experiences are also covered in the article.
