Casa da Praia Environs

Casa da Praia is situated at Copacabana on the Central Coast of New South Wales, Australia.  The Central Coast is characterised by a series of unspoilt beaches, rugged cliffs and secluded bays. 
Enjoy our beaches and lake systems where you can swim, surf, fish, kayak and sail.
Pelicans at The Entrance

If you would like to get up close and personal with Australian wildlife, watch the daily pelican feeding at The Entrance or visit the Australian Wildlife Park, both within 30 minutes drive from Casa da Praia

Further inland, but still a comfortable driving distance from Casa da Praia, is the premium wine growing region of the Hunter Valley.

The cities of Sydney and Newcastle are accessible by public transport from Casa da Praia.  
The bus drivers are friendly and train rides are scenic.  
Best of all, you don't have to hassle with city traffic or parking.
