Located on the Central Coast of New South Wales, Gosford is a picturesque town around 76km from Sydney city. It has been recognised as a vital growth region as outlined in the NSW Metropolitan Strategy. In 2006 the population of Gosford was 155,271. The high cost of living in Sydney has seen many people move to regions such as Gosford and travel into the state's capital each day for work or education. This has been greatly enabled by the development of strong transport opportunities provided by the rail lines and Sydney-Newcastle Freeway.
With a humid, sub-tropical climate, Gosford is a popular regional destination and the Central Business District has recently undergone a redevelopment process. Prominent attractions in Gosford are the stunning Tuggerah Lakes, and the enjoyable daily feeding if wild pelicans. The city is dotted with beautiful surf beaches and places for visitors and locals to hire boats, go fishing, cycling and much more.
