Gosford is a city with everything, and an ideal destination if you have Sydney on your itinerary but don't want to stay in the city. Located just 88 kilometres north from the capital and a short drive from popular Newcastle, Gosford has the diversity of the Brisbane Waters, Brisbane Water National Park and beautiful beaches all at its doorstep. This is the ideal location for a campervan holiday, with plenty of gorgeous views and activities for your friends and family.

Ariving in Sydney, discovery-campervans is the best option when travelling to Gosford. Heading out of Sydney, just take the F3 expressway from North Sydney and you will see the Gosford turnoff signs, then just head onto the Pacific Highway.The journey down the Central Coast is a popular drive for many reasons, mainly the stunning coastline and coastal towns that welcome you at every stop. The drive is a lot longer from Brisbane, but the ten hours of scenery you experience is all a part of the journey, with the Gold Coast, Byron Bay and Port Macquarie all tempting diversions.

Gosford is everything you could imagine a coastal town to be, with plenty of water sports such as sailing, cruising, surfing and even house boating on the river. You have the best of both worlds here, as Gosford is protected further inland, but the adjoining towns of Terrigal, Avoca Beach, Cococabana and Woy Woy are all a short drive away and perfect for a relaxing day trip. There are four national parks within a short drive from Gosford, although Brisbane Waters is the most accessible and popular with locals.

As far as activities go, you won't get bored. The Australian Reptile Park is one of its main tourist drawcards, with kangaroos, snakes and plenty of native wildlife just waiting to be discovered. Visit the Popran National park to see the many wildflower displays, or head out to the Ettalong Markets if you are in the mood for some coastal bargains. The Kincumber Festival can't be missed in October, with concerts, pet farm, great food, music and every type of stall you can imagine.

Terrigal has a holiday vibe, with amazing lookouts, bushwalking in the Bouddi National Park, pretty beaches and relaxing cafes. Campervans are also welcome at Putty Beach, great for a few days of relaxing and sunshine. The Skillion is a well known cliff walk, located not far from the main shopping centre, and rewards its visitors with a panoramic view of the coastline. Keen fishermen will love the reef and game fishing cruises along with the whale watching adventures. Woy Woy is another favourite spot located between the River and National Park, known for its abundant fishing and boating.

Nature lovers will love The Entrance located a quick drive north. Famous for its friendly pelicans fed daily at 3.30pm, this is a drawcard for tourists far and wide, with is fishing, shopping, entertainment and numerous beaches bringing many repeat visitors.

Head further inland and you reach Somersby, famous for its Australian Reptile Park. There is so much to do here that you really need a full day to experience the mammals, reptiles and interactive displays ideal for young and old. Enjoy the kids reactions as they see a giant tortoise for the first time, or the Indiana Jones exhibit. Boys will love the Lost World of Reptiles and the cobwebbed Spider World, or maybe the funnel web spider milking show. Girls might feel safer to say hello to the koalas, kangaroos, platypus and wombats. The park is open from 9am and only two minutes from Gosford.

There are a number of ideal caravan parks and places to stay in the region surrounding Gosford, one we recommend is the Ocean Village Holiday Park at Umina just further south from Gosford on the coastline. You have everything on your doorstep here, with the river, beach and national park all within a few minutes from your mobile home.

The beauty of Gosford is that you have all the benefits of a small city, with fantastic shopping, entertainment and facilities, combined with nature at its best. The deep blue waters of the ocean are just a few minutes away, the rivers bring a sense of peace and tranquillity and the lush national parks spread as far as the eye can see. The mix of earth, sun and sea is the perfect combination to complete your campervan getaway.

So what are you waiting for? Discover Gosford as soon as you can.
