10 Best Things to Do in The Entrance NSW- The Wonderful ‘Karagi’

In case we got you wondering what 'Karagi' is, it means the place where the ocean enters Tuggerah Lake. Don't underestimate how splendidly beautiful this place can be, with its stunning beaches and its enormously beaked pelicans! Here are some of our favourite things to do around the Entrance!

1

The Memorial Park

This is a great spot for a visit with families and children. It usually operates a Ferris wheel throughout school holidays so we barely see any resistance happening on the part of kids coming down, at all! Truth be told, although this sheepish corner of the city lays low throughout most of the year, come school holidays and this place comes to life! Parenting hack 01: this is the perfect spot to let your babies tire themselves to sleep with ample activities to do such as carousel, jumping castles, rides a miniature train as well as a wading pool! You can thank us later!

2

Pelican Feeding

This is one of the biggest attractions of the area and routinely takes place around 3.30 pm on the daily at the foreshore next to Memorial Park. You (peli)can get a chance to get up-close with dozens of these adorable creatures as they congregate one after the other

The Entrance Beach

This 300m of the patrolled beach is located just at the end of the boardwalk and is one of the most popular beaches for surfing in NSW. Amongst numerous central coast resorts that populate this area, one of the most popular accommodation options is the Oaks Waterfront Resort.

The Entrance Baths

Towards the end of the beach stretch are the 'Entrance baths'- a spectacular spot for some evening laps should you fancy some with a splendid view! The toddler pool will keep your littles entertained overlooking the miles of ocean that lie ahead!

5

Walking Along the Channel

Nothing like a brisk walk along the waterfront to help you admire the view of the channel, the Tasman Sea and the Tuggerah Beach. To perk-up your interest as you walk along, make sure to read the signs by the sides of the boardwalk- not only will you have the best walk of your life, you might also be a wizard about the history of the area!

Markets and festivals

An entrance market is a key event that takes place every Saturday of the week. It is the perfect spot to get hands on some of the most intricate pieces of memorabilia, clothes as well as organic products from the friendly neighbourhood vendors at their stalls. In addition to this, many festivals take place in the memorial park throughout the year as follows;
July- Blues and Jazz Festival
September- Chinese Cultural Festival
November- Country Music Festival
November- Half-Marathon
November- Tuggerah Lakes Mardi Gras Parade and Festival
December- Carols by Candlelight and New Year's Eve
If you happen to be visiting around an of these times of the year, do make sure to have a good look at the schedule in the Memorial Park for the month. We guarantee you a lot of fun!

Cycling along Tuggerah Lake

The 12-km shared walking and cycling track that follows the edge of the Tuggerah Lake is one of the best bicycle paths on the Central Coast. Make sure to hop on a bicycle and get savouring the beauty of this waterfront ride!

8

Long Jetty

If you are one to enjoy everything vintage, second-hand shops and hipster cafes, Long Jetty is where you want to be! For a change, this place is a tad noisier than the rest of the town- but hey, that's what makes the place feel livelier as ever!

9

Norah Head

There is always something so directional and fascinating about lighthouses no matter where in the world you may be! Don't you think? Well, Nora Head lighthouse is very much the same and a tour of it is often on offer by the friendly guides with their fascinating stories!

Wyrrabalong National Park

Walk the Wyrrabalong coast walking track and take in some picturesque views at the Crackneck Lookout in Bateau Bay. It is one of the easier and beautiful things in life!
