                Accommodation In The Entrance

                Whether you’re after want sunny beach relaxation, swimming or water sports, The Entrance is ready to entrance you. A popular holiday town on NSW’s Central Coast, it’s the place where the Tasman Sea connects to Tuggerah Lake. Australia’s pelican capital, it’s also a great spot for bushwalks and even a little culture. Book your hotel in The Entrance with us, pack a pair of flip-flops and chill out by the seaside.

                History

                In 1796, a search party discovered Tuggerah Lake while looking for escaped convict Mary Morgan. In 1828, Henry Holden became the first European to settle into the area, buying 260 hectares of land at Picnic Point. The town has been a tourist destination since 1885, when Mr. And Mrs. Walter Denniss opened Dunleith Guest House.

                Things to see and do

                Swim between the flags on a patrolled beach, where the sun’s rays touch the golden sand. Head to Memorial Park on the foreshore to take the kids to Vera’s Water Garden, and test out your skill on the giant chessboard. Fishing is popular both on the beach and in Tuggerah Lake, where you can also water-ski, sail or canoe. And if you’re heading to the lake, there are three long jetties stretching out across the shallow waters, all of which are perfect for fishing and watching the sun go down.

                Pelican fans, you’re in luck. The Entrance is Australia’s pelican capital, and every day at 3.30 in the afternoon, you can watch volunteers toss fish into a crowd of hungry water birds.

                Wyrrabalong National Park is only an eight-minute drive away, so get on the Central Coast Highway and explore sandy beaches, red gum rainforests and sweeping clifftop beach views.

                Every year in July, music lovers can come to The Entrance for the Winter Blues and Jazz Festival, where live jazz, blues, stalls and fun park rides take over Memorial Park.

                Shopping and dining

                After a swim at the beach, wot could be better than a cup of coffee and some pancakes in a trendy cafe? Among other options, there’s also seafood, Italian, and a little fancy cuisine topped off with views of the ocean? You can shop at Lakeside Shopping Centre and take a wander down The Entrance Road’s tree-lined footpaths for everything from fancy dress to clothing to a cinema. On Saturdays, there are farmers and arts and crafts markets down by the beach.

                Getting here

                The Entrance is about halfway between Sydney and Newcastle, making it an ideal getaway from both of those spots. Take a look at our flights to Sydney or flights to Newcastle and go with the flow in your Entrance accommodation.
