Garie Beach
Located within the Royal National Park is a place called Garie Beach. The drive was only fifty minutes from the Sydney CBD, but this place made us feel like we were thousands of miles away from home. The beach is quite empty yet peaceful and a hike up to the cliffs rewards you with endless views of the ocean.

Barrenjoey Headland Walk 
This 1km walking track leads up to the lighthouse that overlooks Palm Beach and is quite an easy walk. I kept looking back from the pathway while I was walking up and the views are just stunningly picturesque! *love heart eyes emoticon*

Macquarie Pass National Park
Trees, trees and more trees! This place is for those who don't mind venturing off into the woods and jumping / climbing / sliding down on all sorts of things. My legs were very tired by the end of it all, but the experience was definitely worth it. You will find a beautiful waterfall hidden behind massive boulders if you keep on hiking through far enough...

Avoca Lake
I love the Central Coast it feels so relaxing and there are so many gorgeous beaches - I definitely want to go back to explore more places. Avoca Lake sits within Avoca Beach and is just a really lovely sight! The lake is so still and you'll find people calmly on their stand-up paddleboards or kayaking away. Definitely a fun spot to go :)
