What to do in the Central Coast, NSW – part 1

In May of this year, Jess visited Sydney again and we decided we’d have a trip to the central coast of NSW. It was our first “wild” adventure where we would stay away from suburbia and have a little time away from the busy-ness of Sydney. Where did we decide to go? Central Coast of course!

We first went to Nelson Bay to catch some sunshine and a bit of the ocean and stayed at a house hosted in Nelson Bay. It was a nice cosy place right next to the beach!


Highly recommended the host Trisha as she was very helpful and friendly, here is Jess taking a mandatory selfie of herself 🙂

Next up we went to the sand dunes via the tour buses for some sand boarding!  They have various levels of difficulty (which was pretty much different sand dune starting heights). I felt it was quite slow on the non-steep ones and wasn’t really worth the effort walking up unless you went to the steep ones!

Keep your hands out to balance on your way down!

Next up, we took the bus back to Nelson Bay then went for a boat trip for dolphin watching!

Don’t forget your sunscreen!

They also had a boom net which I managed to convince Jess to go on. Surprisingly there were no dolphins that came to that side because of the sun being on the other! Shame.

All suited up to go now 🙂

Funny thing was, once Jess got off the boat and into the boom net everyone started wanting to go in! I took the role of photographer!

Best thing was, we actually did see dolphins and a beautiful view this time (one of our first trips out of Sydney was to Nelson Bay but unfortunately no dolphins that time).
