On the shores of the Pacific Ocean just over an hour north of Sydney, the Central Coast’s spectacular beaches, coastal walks and national parks make it a highly sought-after place in which to live, work and play.
Halfway between Sydney and Newcastle, the fastest-growing transport corridor in New South Wales, the Central Coast is the ideal location to do business due to its lower costs and easy access to consumer markets. It’s also perfect for those seeking a relaxed beach lifestyle within easy reach of city life.
The Central Coast is home to several household names in the food manufacturing and agricultural production industries, supported by growing overseas and domestic demand and excellent logistics, warehousing, freight and distribution providers.
The region’s strong services base will continue to drive employment opportunities in health, education, retail and other service sectors. Growth is also expected in knowledge-based industries, providing more opportunities for professional, technical and scientific services, and the education and training sectors.
