Cheek by jowl with MacMasters and Avoca beaches, Kincumber lies at the southern end of the peerless Central Coast.
Stretching from Broken Bay at the mouth of the Hawkesbury River to Lake Macquarie, this is a resort region which offers the complete tourist package - a network of safe, spectacular lakes, superb surfing beaches, rainforest and bush reserves and parks, theme and fauna parks, cruises, stillwater and ocean fishing and a huge selection of accommodation and restaurant cuisine. And it is all within an hour’s drive, cruise or train from the heart of Sydney.
Timber-getters and boat builders were the first to settle the Kincumber-MacMasters-Avoca region from the early 1820s and boats from tinnies to stately ocean-going yachts and luxury cruisers are still very much part of the lifestyle.
Social history, however, also remains a vital part of the Kincumber scene through such charming land marks as St Paul's Anglican Church where locals have been worshipping since the 1840s.
You will find even older monuments in the sand dunes standing up to 100 metres above sea level as signposts to an ancient past in magnificent Bouddi National Park, flanking MacMasters Beach.
The 1189ha park preserves ageless stands of rainforest and hardy evergreens overlooking tranquil bays and pristine beaches. Bouddi is a sanctuary for a vast range of animals and birds including gliders, possums, echidnas, bandicoots, marsupial mice, scrub turkeys, lyrebirds and white-breasted sea eagles.
