Bowls on the Coast
The Central Coast is a picturesque area just one hour north of Sydney on the F3 freeway or a scenic journey by electric train. It basically covers the two shires of Gosford City and Wyong and spans from its southern most point the Brooklyn Bridge on the F3 freeway to Morisset in the North, and west to Gwandalan on Lake Macquarie.
It has a residential population of young families many of whom commute to Sydney for work, and at the other end of the scale, it is a haven for retirees seeking a more relaxed lifestyle.
It is also a popular holiday destination with many seaside towns offering resort accommodation, pristine beaches, rugged coastline and a paradise for the fishing enthusiast.
