The essential guide to a weekend getaway on the Central Coast
The easiest way to reach the Central Coast is by car – it’s roughly a 90-minute drive from the CBD.
If you want a more leisurely trip north and some fresh ocean air, take the L90 bus to Palm Beach and catch the ferry to Wagstaffe or Ettalong for a scenic 20-minute journey to your destination.
