The Entrance Things to Do

    There beaks hold more than there bellies...

    by cybergenic Updated Dec 12, 2006

    At 3.30PM you can watch or join in a Pelican feeding frenzy. Assorted waste from the fish markets are taken into the bay where the Pelicans have learned to hang out at about 2.59PM every day for some free food. Probably the main reason why The Entrance has become the Pelican capital of Australia.
    They are bigger than you would imagine.

    is it 3.30 yet?

    Go boating

    by cybergenic Written Jul 30, 2005

    If you do not have a boat yourself, you can take advantage of the two boat hire places.
    Hire a boat and go dolphin spotting.
    We saw heaps of dolphins from the beach.

    Both premises have boats available as well as bait, tackle and supplies so you can truly enjoy your day.

    Arabian Lounge: Lebanese food in The Entrance

    by colin_bramso Written Feb 28, 2014

    We miss the Lebanese food that we ate every weekend in Dubai, so we were delighted to find a good Lebanese restaurant on the Central Coast.

    Arabian Lounge is a large restaurant, probably seating a hundred, fully licensed and serving traditional Lebanese dishes. The head chef is Lebanese, so it's authentic.

    It's in a great setting too, just across a quiet road from the water of Tuggerah Lakes just out of the town centre.

    We go at lunchtime and it's not busy, service is friendly and good, the food is fresh and good quality. Unless we go into the Lebanese area of Sydney this is as good as we'll find.

    Open Thursday to Sunday for lunch and Tuesday to Sunday for dinner. They have a belly dancer on Friday and Saturday nights.

    Favorite Dish: We have a range of mezza favourites that we choose from for lunch: chicken kebab (shish tawook), fried kibbe, falafel, vine leaves, hommus.

    The Entrance Hotel: Don't bother with the seafood

    by cybergenic Updated Aug 4, 2005

    Great outdoor beer garden and sitting and dining area. Enjoy the spectacular views of the channel. Great for people watching.
    They sell "seafood baskets" which you would assume would be filled with fresh local seafood. Not the case. The seafood baskets they serve are cooked from frozen, heavily battered off cuts from the sea and are deeply deepfried. The steaks on the other hand are very good.
    AUD$13 for a steak and salad.

    Favorite Dish: Steak + salad.
    A nice cold beer to wash it down.

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.
