Pretty Patonga Beach, the Place for Great Holidays

On the southernmost point of Central Coast in New South Wales is Patonga Beach, a lovely bay set back, so the ocean is quite calm. Across the bay is the entrance to Hawkesbury River, Barrenjoey, Lion Island and West Head. This is a particularly lovely area for the kids to swim since there are no really dangerous tides here.

When the tide goes out, Patonga Creek offers shallow waters for the kids to paddle in. Here, find a playground for the kids to let off steam and a boat ramp for boat trips out into the river or bay.

Patonga is really the place to get away from the hustle and bustle of life in the city. Sydney is about ninety minutes away, so this place usually attracts locals as well as tourists, for whom holiday accommodation is plentiful.

Things to Do Here

When the tide is out, walking along the banks of the creek is a great way to go for a bush walk. There are many trails so just ask a local which one is the best one to take. There is fishing available in the creek too, with boats or canoes available for those who feel a little more energetic. At Patonga Beach and Pearl Beach, there are tennis courts and for quieter times, take a picnic down to the beach.

Just inland, about ten minutes by road, is a golf course and there are also cruise vessels and ferries dotted here and there. Try the one from Palm Beach which goes up the Hawkesbury to Pittwater and Broken Bay. Bobbin Head is where most people like to drop in for lunch.

One thing not to be missed is the penguin colony on Lion Island. You also get to see the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park from the water as well as the lighthouse on Barrenjoey Head. Indeed, it is the supremely beautiful scenery all around this coastline that sees people taking the trip more than once!

There are other beaches in the vicinity so try spending a few days exploring the area. One beach, Umina, is great for the keep fit crowd since it is extremely long, heralding the way for a very long walk.

Since this is such a quiet and peaceful destination, people tend to find accommodation here and then set out for a day or two to wilder places to have some fun. For example, Sydney is not so far away so people tend to drop by there for a weekend to take in all the sights and sounds of the city. Of course, there is culture by the bucket load with galleries, museums and the ubiquitous Opera House as well as the sight of the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge. Take in a musical or film festival or just hang out with the upwardly mobile set in some of the smartest bars in the world. Fine dining is available as well as fast food joints so just sit back and watch Australians having fun!

Where to Stay

As one would expect from a beach resort, Patonga holiday accommodation comes in many forms. Holiday homes and rental apartments are there in plenty as well as service apartments or any other kind of accommodation to suit the individual’s needs. For families with kids, try to find rental apartments or holiday homes with a pool to have some downtime away from the bright lights and the beach.

When to Come

The weather in this part of the world is superb compared to the UK. It doesn’t really get too cold even in the winter months which run from around April to October. If it is constant hot weather that is needed, try a holiday in December or January. Don’t forget though that this is also the high season for locals so book well in advance.

How to Get Here

International flights from the UK are available from several airlines and the good news is that prices are relatively cheap these days. Fly into Sydney for the onward journey by car and ferry or by train. It is a good idea to book as many things as possible before arrival and this is achievable online. Book Patonga accommodation, transfers, car hire, tickets to fun parks or attractions and anything else that is found online.

I booked this for a Corporate event and had to accommodate different people from across Australia in one accommodation setting for a Launch Event. Everyone came back with the same feedback; beautifully decorated and arranged, clean, comfortable, easy to get to and a home away from home. I asked if they would stay there again, because I often need to book accommodation, and it was a resounding "Yes, definitely!" Thank you again Michael.
