Although there are many lovely towns in the the Central Coast of New South Wales area, one of the nicest would have to be The Entrance, New South Wales, Australia, situated just over a hundred kilometres north of Sydney. The town got its name from being located on the channel that connects Tuggerah Lake to the ocean. If you’re tired of constantly traveling and looking for somewhere to completely chill out, a sojourn to The Entrance may be just what you’re looking for -- a hostel in The Entrance is a great place from which to base yourself to experience everything this area has to offer.

As it's surrounded by water, it’s hardly surprising that The Entrance is a mecca for people who enjoy water-sports. If you’re an active, fun-loving, indie traveler, the town is an awesome spot to enjoy sports such as swimming, sailing, wind-surfing, water-skiing, jet-skiing, kayaking, diving, and surfing. If you’ve never tried any of these, no worries. There are plenty of local places from which you can hire the gear and take lessons.

If you prefer to stay dry, there are plenty of other land-based things to do too. Lots of visitors love cycling around the area, and the beautiful beaches are perfect for beachcombing. The nearby Wyrrabalong National Park and Munmorah State Conservation Area are also great places to explore the beautiful natural environment and maybe even spot some native animals and bird life. Another fun thing to do in town is feeding the local pelicans -- this takes place at Memorial Park, every day at 3:30 p.m.

The Entrance is located halfway between the two largest cities in New South Wales, Sydney, and Newcastle, and is easily accessible by both public and private transport. If you’re driving north, take the M1 Motorway to the Wyong exit and follow the signs. Those traveling by public transport can take the train to either Gosford or Wyong, and catch a local bus from there.
