On the way you will see stunning bushland scenery, magnificent Hawkesbury River views and stop for a break at a historic fishing village that has a reputation for providing some of Australia’s best oysters.

Once you arrive at the northern most point of the Central Coast the first stop is at one of Australia’s oldest working lighthouses perched above the magnificent Soldiers Beach. If you are feeling energetic then you might like to take a guided tour to the top of the lighthouse for spectacular views! Whether you chose to climb to the top or keep your feet on the ground the views from this location are amazing and depending on the season you may even get to
see migrating Whales breaching offshore.

After all of the morning's activities there will be time for a relaxing lunch at one of the fabulous waterfront locations (at the guests expense). You may also choose to pick up some of the area’s best fish & chips to enjoy on
the beach instead.

In the afternoon the highlight is a visit to the world renowned Australian Reptile Park located in a rural bushland location where you can meet the famous 'Elvis the World's Crankiest Crocodile'. You will also see many of Australia's weird and wonderful Snakes, Reptiles, Koalas and even pat Kangaroos.

Throughout the tour your guide will provide an informative commentary and as it is a private tour if you want to spend a little more time at an attraction or go for a walk along one of the beaches then we can accommodate
those special requests!

Finally at the end of the tour you can relax in comfort as you are driven back to you hotel or accommodation taking with you memories of a wonderful day!
