Top 5 reasons people are flocking to the Central Coast to Live, Work, and Play!
The Central Coast NSW, previously renowned as a holiday destination and retirement haven, is evolving and changing into an idyllic coastal paradise that more people and businesses are calling home.
Here are five excellent reasons why the Central Coast is the perfect place to Live, Work and Play:
1. Perfectly Positioned
The Central Coast is situated halfway between Sydney and Newcastle, making both cities accessible for business and leisure. The M1 Pacific Motorway connects commuters traveling by car, currently being upgraded between Tuggerah and Doyalson to accommodate increased capacity. Trains also operate to the Central Coast from Sydney and Newcastle, departing approximately every 30mins during peak times. For some living on the Central Coast the area is considered to be a mere extension of each of these cities.
A combination of historically low interest rates, investor interest, shortage of supply, and increased demand from growing populations within metropolitan areas such as Sydney, Newcastle and across Australia, has resulted in higher property prices for purchasers, and subsequently increased costs for renters. Additionally business are also feeling the impact from these trends, finding it difficult to remain profitable from increasing expenses to include rent and wages. This lack of affordability for both residence and businesses, is forcing them to search elsewhere in the hope of obtaining value for their money. The Central Coast is an area which could offer a solution to this dilemma, as the median house price in the northern part of the Central Coast is valued at around $500 000, compared to almost $1 million for a similar house, and $700 000 for a unit in most suburbs of Sydney.
There are an increasing number of studies providing evidence, that a connection with nature makes us healthier and happier people. Interacting with environments which promote natural light, peacefulness, fresh air, and animals can improve our health and wellbeing. Within close proximity to each town and suburb, the Central Coast provides many opportunities for all people of varying ability to find their ideal way for making this connection. The coast-line consists of countless magnificent beaches and beautiful lakes for water recreation, state forests for bush walking, mountain biking, and adventure sports, and parks to catch up with family and friends, and picnics.
The Central Coast offers an extensive range of education choices for people who have decided to move to the region. Child Care and Early Learning Centres, private schools, as well as selective and public schools are available, providing quality education to the differing needs of children. Tertiary education is available through TAFE, College, and the University of Newcastle (Central Coast) based at Ourimbah campus, allowing young adults to continue living on the Central Coast while studying and developing their skills, which can further enhance the regions resources and future capabilities.
Whether you like going to the local RSL Club, performing arts, cafés and contemporary restaurants, or watching a movie at the cinemas, the Central Coast offers an endless list of quality entertainment for people of all ages, tastes, and budgets. There is also no shortage of well-maintained golf courses, and many sporting options to keep you active. Central Coast Stadium is home to the Central Coast Mariners football team, and also hosts rugby league and rugby union fixtures on an adhoc basis, along with other social events.
