Norah Bay Lighthouse

On our way back from the Hunter Valley we took a drive down the Central Coast on the way home.

We first stopped off at the Norah Bay lighthouse. We did the 1km-ish round trip walk along the nature trail tot he lighthouse and back along the beach. We finished off with an nice cream for our efforts!

From there we drove on another 10km or so to the Entrance, which is a spit and big lagoon (Tuggerah Lake). The view was cool and there were people kite surfing which looked good fun. There were also tons of pelicans – there are a lot of them around there. We were in time for the pelican feeding too which was good entertainment.

Next stop was Terrrigal Beach, a long beach with a lookout. By now I was a bit bored of beaches, so after a quick wander we headed on.

We drove back via the Bouddi National Park which has cool views back across to Lion Island, Barrenjoey, Palm Beach and Sydney beyond.

The scenic drive was not much of a detour an much better than the M1. (The M1 in Australia isn’t dissimilar to the M1 in the UK expect its hotter, hillier, less busy and has more trees by it!)
