Starting in Sydney and Heading up the Central Coast
This first day you have the opportunity to take in many sights along the way, whether you are traveling by car, motor coach or get a hire campervan in Sydney. Stop at Bouddi National Park for a bushwalk (tramping, hiking on defined trails, tracks, or roads) in this natural reserve fringed by lush rainforest, cliffs of sandstone, and secluded beaches. North of Sydney about an hour up the road you come upon Avoca Beach, a long crescent shaped golden-sand beach and popular spot for families, holiday visitors, surfers, and known as an angler’s paradise. Hire (rent) water sports equipment, stroll the seashore, or relax and enjoy the sun. Next is Terrigal where you can fish right from the beach, explore Bateau Bay with its protected beaches and the wildlife of the Towoon Bay. Try a bike ride around the shores of Tuggerah Lake where you can also swim, sail, canoe, sailboard or water ski and then feed the fish and pelicans right off the beaches at The Entrance. If you are up to it, hop on the ferry and take a bushwalk, see wildflowers and Aboriginal art at Brisbane National Park. Overnight in one of the nearby Central Coast towns or caravan park campsites if you are in a campervan.
From Australia’s Central Coast to the Hunter Valley
The second day takes you to Newcastle to explore the many options it has in store. Surf Nobby’s Beach, go to Newcastle Harbour for wreck diving, take a swim on Bar Beach or check out Dixon Park for a hang-gliding adventure. The Hunter Valley offers a plentitude of enticing wineries for tasting, 120 to choose from with excellent variety. Broke presents a handcrafted selection for tasting, don’t miss Nightingale wines just on Milbrodale Road, and the cellar doors at Lovedale’s are always open for purchases. For a different view, take a hot air balloon ride at Pokolbin and gaze at vineyards from above. Cessnock features skydiving in tandem or head to Yengo National Park for a leisurely bushwalk.
