Gosford is only 60 minutes north of Sydney and is the business hub of the Central Coast. It is located on the northern end of Brisbane Waters. It is home to Gosford Shire Council, with its public libraries, Olympic size pools, technical college public and private schools, major hospital and sporting grounds (including indoor sporting arenas). It is also home to ever popular Blue Tongue Stadium where many national rugby league, rugby union and football games are played.
There are several large clubs, pubs, bars and night clubs, shopping centres, including cafes and fine dining restaurants, most of which are conveniently located within the central business district. Gosford has two theatres, a race course, ten pin bowling, museums and art galleries and the foreshore plays host to several popular annual events including summer carnivals, circuses and the noodle night markets.
Not far from Gosford is the Australian Reptile Park at Somersby, the miniature steam trains and locomotives at Narara and Mt Pennang Gardens at Kariong which hosts the Australian Springtime Flora Festival annually.
For those wanting to relax and unwind why not stroll around the foreshore of Gosford, sip on a latte whilst watching the boats sail past, picnic by the water, join in a water aerobics class at the indoor heated pool or enjoy a massage at one of the many day spas.
With a major train line, buses, plenty of parking and lots of accommodation to suite all budgets, Gosford is a very convenient location in which to base yourself. With beaches and major shopping centres only 20 minutes away and the convenience of city facilities makes Gosford and ideal place to stay.
