How This Insider Guide Came About

Welcome to our getaway guide to the Central Coast NSW.

The Central Coast is a region just north of Sydney. With its many beaches, bushwalks and coastal towns, the Central Coast makes for a perfect escape from the city.

The site started as a desire to inspire families, couples and solo travellers who are planning a getaway from Sydney.

My name is Christine.

When we moved to the Central Coast from Sydney 15 years ago, we struggled to find thorough information on the region.

We wanted to find out about the beaches, bushwalks and hidden gems. So we set out to explore the region as best as we could.

Now that we have visited every town, beach and secret spots, I’d like to share with you everything that I know.

This site will help you explore the region and find out the best sights and attractions.

Our Family

Me – Christine

I grew up in Quebec, and I met my Australian husband Jamie while backpacking in Mexico.  After our adventure overseas we decided to move to Australia. 

I loved Australia straight away.

We lived in Sydney in the first few years but soon moved to the Central Coast. We wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Our kids were born here and since then we have been learning and exploring the region as a family.


Jamie likes everything about sports and the outdoors.

He spends as much time as he can surfing, swimming, cycling, playing soccer and more. Jamie knows a great deal about cycling itineraries, soccer fields and surfing spots on the Central Coast.
