Hugging the inner shore of beautiful Brisbane Water which opens on to Broken Bay at the mouth of the Hawkesbury River, Gosford is the administrative centre for the aquatic and bush wonderland of the Central Coast.

Just 85km north of the heart of Sydney, Gosford and its attendant villages have everything desired for a family holiday - sweeping surf beaches, sheltered bays and lakes, bush walks leading to lookouts with panoramic views of the coast, all levels of restaurants, large, fully-appointed licensed clubs and live entertainment.

There are also sporting facilities, rock, stillwater, beach and deep sea fishing, a mild climate and a world-class attraction, the Australian Reptile Park and Wildlife Sanctuary.

Gosford is accessible by expressway or by air-conditioned train.

Festivals: Mangrove Mountains District County Fair ( October), Gosford City Arts Festival (October/November)Gosford to Lord Howe Island Yacht Race (November)
