Wyong - Central Coast
Wyong is an Aboriginal word meaning 'place of running water' or 'edible clam' and it is said that the Darkinjang Aborigines occupied the Wyong area prior to the Europeans settling in the early 1800's, initially to gain access to the cedar forests then to farming.
Being one of the two Shires that make up the Central Coast, the township of Wyong is just over an hours drive north of Sydney and is situated in a very central location in which to explore surrounding areas such as the Yarramalong and Dooralong Valleys and the Watagan State Forest to the west and coastal towns, lakes and ocean to the east.
The township of Wyong is a busy central business district, with its Council Chambers and a large recently refurbished shopping centre. Wyong Railway station and the local bus service makes Wyong a place within 'easy reach' of everything on the Central Coast. For those who like a punt on the horses, situated a short walk from the railway station over the railway brigde is Wyong Race Club.
Fine dining and cafes are plentiful in Wyong, some of which are located right on the banks of the beautiful Wyong River that winds its way around the township.

Wyong is also conveniently located close to a very large shopping centre, Westfields at Tuggerah, comprising of a cinema complex, department stores, supermarkets and hundreds of independent shops. Located over the railway line at Tuggerah is the Homemakers Supa Centa Tuggerah and Supa Factory Outlets that houses many retail factory outlets and seconds so all of you 'shopp-a-aholics' will be in your element.
