Central Coast real estate
Situated an hour north of Sydney, Central Coast is one of NSW's best-kept secrets. But locals certainly know all that the Central Coast has to offer - hiking alongside glorious beaches, pelican feeding, world-renowned golfing, shopping and much more.
The Central Coast's population in 2021 is just over 354,000, with the median age at 41 years. There are numerous schools and daycares, and within an hour's drive to a number of tertiary campuses in both Newcastle and Sydney. There is plenty of access to public transport, major freeways, and quality healthcare. The Central Coast real estate median house price is increasing rapidly and for many suburbs is currently over the $1million mark (2021).
Things to see and do on the Central Coast
The Central Coast is conveniently located between Sydney and Newcastle, bringing together the people and vibrancy of both cities. If you enjoy a relatively quiet lifestyle, set away from the hustle and bustle of a major city centre, while at the same time having easy access to nature and its wonders – life on the Central Coast could be just the ticket. Close enough to Sydney for work, but also far enough away to enjoy the serenity.
One of the most unique features of the Central Coast is the abundance of pelicans. These long-beaked, long-necked, wide-winged birds are a familiar sight on the Central Coast and there is even pelican feeding at The Entrance's Pelican Plaza daily, restrictions permitting.
Bouddi National Park is home to some of Australia's most spectacular beachside hiking trails, including the Bouddi Coastal Walk, an 8.5km, 3-4 hour walk out-and-back. This walk takes you alongside the churning ocean waters, past some of Australia's most beautiful coastline.
The Central Coast is a fantastic lifestyle option, providing beautiful outdoor spaces and opportunities for those who want to step away from the city.
