The Entrance - Cities, Towns and Localities
Just 99 km north of Sydney and one of the most popular holiday destinations of the Central Coast, The Entrance includes Bateau Bay, Long Jetty, Shelly Beach, Toowoon Bay, Tuggerah Lake and Wyrrabalong National Park. As well as being a popular holiday resort, it is popular as a retirement region, offering waterways, lake, surf beaches and foreshore parklands.

The Entrance is where the ocean enters Tuggerah Lake, as was known by a number of names over the years, including Toowoon Bay, Tuggerah Beach and Karagi (the Aboriginal name for the channel). It became known as The Entrance after the post office that opened under that name in 1911.

The area is a magnet for the avid fishermen, with long stretches of surf beach on one side and the lake on the other. It is also home to the Memorial Sailing Club, who sponsors the ‘Cock of the Lake’ race from Long Jetty to Toukley and back, held annually at the end of April.
