Spent three hours here today soaking up the beautiful quality of a hige number of cars from all sorts of makers, including some I'd never heard of before. The display is well laid out in a huge building with good information included for each exhibit. If you love cars it is well worth a visit. Good prices including concession prices. All cars are for sale if you have the dollars - a great way to create envy from your neighbours!

I visited the park with family including a 4 year old, and loved every moment.
There are plenty of shows and feeding times staggered very regularly through the day, they are announced clearly for everyone to hear, and informative and plenty of space for everyone to see, including peep holes for 4 year olds to see through also.
The staff are fantastic!! The park has plenty of staff, and are doing a great job. There are staff holding animals for the children (and adults ) to touch and learn from. Photos with animals were $25, but proceeds went to conservation.
The park and facilities were lovely and clean. The food was not as expensive as I expected, but we did bring our own snacks and water, some people had brought complete picnics and BBQ food. So there are options if you want to keep cost down.
We arrived pretty much at open time which was great, the animals were active, and not as many people initially, but never had a problem with crowds anyway, everyone was chilled and polite.
All in all, great in every way, very happy .

Somersby Falls Picnic Grounds

Somersby Falls is a lovely place. Actually, my daughter had all of her engagement photos taken there and they were stunning. The scenery made the photos gorgeous. They have certainly made a lot of improvements there over the years. Well worth having a look at.

Central Coast Stadium

Reviewed By camkwc - Cambridge

It's the fourth time, I've visited the Mariners' Stadium and I know the view of the pitch is good, and entry is easy, but please do something about the food and drink offering. The beer, Great Northern or something, is almost undrinkable and the food offering is best left alone. Come on guys, you can do better.

A good location with lots of free Parking
I've noticed that there appears to be perhaps not quite as many stallholders compared to my previous visits
The quality of the produce is very good , The Central Coast needs this market.
It deserves to be patrononised more , its worth a visit for sure

Took our grandchildren age 10,8 and 6 for an amazing, fun filled hour - although a little tiring for the grandparents. Safety was foremost with plenty of "lifesavers" supervising the activities and participants. I would highly recommend this activity for all children competent in the water.

Couldn't find any where else to eat in Gosford before a school presentation and had no high expectations. Lovely surprise. Large choice of meals, clean nice atmosphere, and very well priced. We ordered a really nice steak Sandwich and roast meal and the kids meals were huge and delicious. Staff were lovely. We'll definitely return.

Central Coast Interactive War Exhibit

Interactive exibit of war memorabilia, including sight, sound, dioramas, lifesize displays

Reviewed By seajayh - Sydney, Australia

I was very impressed with the standard of this exhibition. All of the exhibits have been personally collected by the owner over a period of 20+ years. Schoolchildren visit the exhibit as part of their curriculum and the venue regularly hosts special interest groups. The audio makes it sound so realistic too!
