The charming fishing village of Patonga is located on the southern end of the Central Coast and offers an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. This hidden gem has it all – an amazing campsite, a welcoming local pub, and a excess of water and beach activities to cater to every taste.
Patonga campsite is nestled between the pristine beach and the meandering Patonga Creek. It's the perfect place to unwind for a weekend getaway. Whether you choose to paddle out in a kayak along the serene creek to catch your dinner or simply bask in the sun on the picturesque beach.
The Boathouse Hotel stands at the heart of Patonga, where locals and visitors gather to enjoy a drink and a yarn. There's something irresistible about sipping refreshing drinks on the terrace, especially on a scorching summer day.
Patonga also serves as the starting point for the northern stretch of the Great North Walk, an epic hiking adventure from Sydney to Newcastle. The section of the walk winds it way through Brisbane Water National Park to the small train station at Wondabyne. But if you prefer shorter walks, the path to Warrah Lookout offers breathtaking views over Broken Bay, or you can venture further to explore the delightful Pearl Beach.
