Central Coast

General Information

Long a popular destination for holiday-makers from around New South Wales, this seaside resort area about two hours drive north of Sydney now draws dive enthusiasts by the boat load. The attractions include rocky reefs and shoals, caves, drop- offs and a few shipwrecks.

 One of the most interesting sires is an old mooring area littered with the rusting old car engines, steel beams and chains that once kept the fishing fleet from drifting away. Wrasse, bream, whiting, morwong, perch, flathead and small stingrays love the place.
