The Central Coast of Australia is a world renowned hotspot for pro surfers all year round, and our shores offer some amazing diving experiences such as the HMAS Adelaide. All of these are bookable from our travel desk at The Entrance Backpackers.

The region’s beaches are world-class, while the lake at its back door is ideal for water-skiing, canoeing, sailing, rowing and sailboarding. Fishing from the ocean beaches or lakes is always popular and prawns can be caught on midsummer nights. Nearby, Terrigal and Ettalong Beach are well worth a visit.

Pelican feeding is conducted daily at the Entrance, Memorial Park from 3.30pm. Pelicans arrive earlier, eager for a feed. A special area has been built where the pelicans gather each afternoon, waiting to be fed fish donated by the local fish shop. There is an educational talk given with plenty of opportunities to ask questions and take photos. It won’t take long to find out why The Entrance is known as the pelican capital of Australia.

Just over an hour’s drive away is the beautiful Hunter Valley where you can discover Australia’s premier wine growing region. The Hunter Valley is a feast for the senses (particularly taste!). Aside from being a foodies dream, the Hunter Valley is steeped in quaint history and historical architecture, much of which you can learn about by visiting the various museums and historical tours. The Hunter Valley also boasts an abundance of wildlife in a world class National Park.
