Pretty Beach Things to Do

    Depending on your fitness, this walk CAN be quite difficult, although we're not what you would call "fit", and we completed the walk no worries.

    The track starts at Killcare heights, and ends at Maitland Bay - a gorgeous, quiet beach. VERY romantic - but if you are offended by nudists BE WARNED it is a nudist beach!!

    There are many different walking trails, some ranging from as little as 1.5 hours to overnight walks.

    At the Pretty Beach Campground there is a huge map and tourist information board which highlights different walking trails.

    Cute little restaurant located on the lake, you MUST have breakfast here, it's divine. Sit outside and enjoy the fantastic view.

    Favorite Dish: Bacon and eggs with mushroom and grilled tomato. Ask for toasted turkish bread. The food is always cooked to perfection.

Pretty Beach Nightlife

    The Central Coast does not have a whole lot of options (in terms of nightlife) - but the few places that it does offer are great!

    THE WOODPORT INN

    A large pub at Erina (near Terrigal, Central Coast). There is always live music, GREAT food (go for the steak - you won't be dissapointed), and a nightclub downstairs. We would recommend going on a Friday night when karaoke is on.

    CENTRAL COAST LEAGUES CLUB (Gosford)

    A good saturday night destination (it is always packed out). A buffet restuarant, cocktail bar, pool room and nightclub ('Troppo') upstairs (known as a great pick-up joint). Iguana Joes is another great bar across the road from the leagues club.

    Dress Code: NO thongs or shorts

Pretty Beach Transportation

    The only way that you can get around the central coast is by car, because everything is quite spread out and the public transport system sucks.

    We would recommend either getting a train from Sydney and hiring a car once you get here, or alternatively hiring a car in Sydney and driving up here (the drive can be a little hectic in peak hours).

    We're not all that familiar with car hire (as we don't do it ourselves!), so we wouldnt be sure as to the costs.

    Kookaburras at Pretty Beach

    by leebee1 Written Apr 25, 2005

    Beware when cooking your BBQ of the swooping Kookaburras...

    Again, they wont hurt you, but they may make off with some of your food if you turn your back!

    Kangaroos at Pretty Beach

    by leebee1 Written Apr 25, 2005

    Not that the Kangaroos will hurt you...

    But in the night if your walking around they are a bit of a hazard...and they give you an aweful fright when you almost run into one!

    Make sure you pack a powerful torch!

    Favorite thing: If you are camping at Pretty Beach, it will cost you $7 per night to park your car in the National Park...

    Your best bet is to get an annual pass which will costs you $22. If your staying for 3 nights it will only costs you $1 extra and you can take advantage of it by visiting as many times as you want!

    The annual pass is not transferrable to other vehicles and is only valid for Murramarang National Park!
