Booker Bay

Welcome to Booker Bay.

Booker Bay is situated in the Woy Woy Peninsula on NSW’s Central Coast. Staying in Booker Bay gives you access to a picturesque coastal village of Ettalong Beach situated beside the popular Brisbane Waters. Located south-east of Woy Woy, this lazy fishing town is located about 80 kilometres north of Sydney and forms part of the Gosford Shire. Accessible from Sydney and Newcastle via the M1 motorway (formerly F3), Booker Bay is a short drive to Woy Woy railway station. Ettalong Beach is the sister suburb of Booker Bay with both towns originally occupied by the Dharruk and Darkinjung Indigenous communities. European settlers soon discovered the area shortly after settling in Botany Bay.

Retaining the historic charm of a once thriving fishing and boat building community, arts and crafts and good food are popular in the community as well as Ettalong’s Cinema Paradiso theatre. Ettalong Beach is only minutes away which is home to a variety of cafes, restaurants, home wares stores and more. For those who love the beach, Ocean and Umina Beaches are close by and surfers can enjoy the famous local beach known as Box. The local wharf has regular ferry services travelling between Ettalong, Wagstaffe and Palm Beach.

While the area is a popular holiday destination for tourists, much of the population is made up of permanent residents. Take a walk along the foreshore and gorgeous beaches and you’ll soon discover the locals – they’re the ones who look relaxed!

1 copacabana

Copacabana

Welcome to Copacabana.

In early European settlement days, Copacabana was originally named Tudibaring, an Aboriginal word meaning ‘place where the waves pound like a beating heart’. To add confusion, the seaside town was also known as Allagai, Judi Barn, Kincumber and Macs until 1954 when Gosford City Council granted permission to name the town Copacabana after the famous beach in Brazil. A popular surfing and swimming beach, Copacabana is situated at the northern end of Macmasters Beach, the two beaches divided by Cochrone Lagoon.

Copacabana is home to a Surf Life Saving Club and the beach is patrolled with people urged to swim between the flags. From late May to early August, humpback whales can be seen frolicking in the waters as they migrate to warmer water. Copacabana features a small shopping strip featuring cafes, bakery, newsagent and chemist. Situated only 90 minutes drive north of Sydney CBD.

Blue Bay

Welcome to Blue Bay.

Tucked between The Entrance and Toowoon Bay, Blue Bay is located on a peninsula between Tuggerah Lake and the Pacific Ocean. Named after the calm blue water that graces its 250 metre long shoreline, Blue Bay is one of the Central Coast’s best kept secrets. This small seaside town is perfect for families thanks to its gentle beach with small surf. The bays attract bream and whiting, while the rocks are fished for luderick, blackfish and mulloway. A popular place for stand up paddle boarding, Blue Bay beach is only a two minute walk along the sand to patrolled Toowoon Bay beach which also offers a children’s park and picnic area. Blue Bay is also just a short walk to Toowoon Bay cafes and The Entrance Surf Life Saving Club. Apart of the Wyong Shire Council, Blue Bay is only 90 minutes drive north of Sydney CBD.

Welcome to Narraweena.

Narraweena is located in a suburb north of Sydney on the idyllic Northern Beaches, New South Wales. Narraweena is an Aboriginal name meaning ‘a quiet place in the hills’.

Hardys Bay / Killcare

Welcome to Hardys Bay & Killcare.

Down in the Bouddi Peninsula lies two of the Central Coast’s most exclusive towns, Killcare and Hardys Bay. Loved for their private, secluded location, these picturesque towns are a cosmopolitan retreat for celebrities and the affluential. Named after Harry Hardy, a local vineyard owner who sold wine to local residents, Hardys Bay is home to a small array of cafes, restaurants, boutique stores, RSL club and marina. After British settlement the area was established as a fishing and farming community. The name Killcare seems to hail from early last century as “killing one’s cares”. These quiet residential seaside village is a short drive to neighbouring towns such as Wagstaff and Pretty Beach, and just ten minutes drive to Booker Bay, Ettalong Beach and Umina Beach.

Protected from high winds, Hardys Bay has long been regarded as a fishing resort for the serious and recreational fisherman and boating in the postcard perfect bay is a must. Surrounded by natural beauty, Hardys Bay and Killcare are within close proximity to Putty Beach, Tallow Beach and Bouddi National Park where visitors can take the walking track to Box Head. The Cockatoo Ferry runs to Hardys Bay Wharf seven days a week. Avid surfers and beach-goers will love Killcare Beach as well as Putty Beach which is tucked away in the Bouddi National Park.

Killcare and Hardys Bay look over the Brisbane Waters across to Booker Bay. Prior to European settlement, Aboriginals from the coastal Guringai (Ku-ring-gai) tribe occupied Hardys Bay and its surrounds. Evidence of their existence in the area can be seen via rock carvings scattered through the town.

Bordering the town is the beauty of the Brisbane Waters National Park. This expansive reserve borders the Hawkesbury River and contains scenic sandstone landscapes and Aboriginal rock art.

Empire Bay

Empire Bay

Welcome to Empire Bay.

Empire Bay accommodation gives you access to a popular coastal town on the Central Coast, NSW. This peaceful seaside town was not always known as Empire Bay – originally named Sorrento, after a local boarding school. It was only officially named Empire Bay in 1908 when a Postal Receiving Office was built in town and to avoid confusion with a town in Victoria with the same name, Sorrento became known as Empire Bay. The name is said to have been chosen at the time because there was no such town name in the Commonwealth region.

Located on the Bouddi Peninsula, Empire Bay is nearby popular tourist towns Ettalong Beach, Umina Beach and Woy Woy which offer plenty of leisurely activities for all occasions. Empire Bay Tavern is a popular place for locals and tourists as it offers great food, beverage and entertainment for friends and families alike. It also offers a courtesy bus back to your doorstep.

Ferry services regularly run from Empire Bay to Saratoga and Davistown. Take a short drive to Terrigal and Avoca Beach for surfing beaches and authentic cuisines such as Thai, Malaysian, Greek, Indian and seafood, of course.

Bouddi National Park is just moments away. This popular national park extends into the sea creating fully protected land, shore and marine habitats. It contains a series of small secluded beaches making it ideal for bushwalking, picnics, fishing, swimming and relation and privacy. Empire Bay is approximately 90 minutes drive to Sydney and Newcastle.
