Activities include: horse riding and agistment, kayaking, quad biking, abseiling, mountain biking, laser skirmish, school holiday camps, bushwalking and camping.

Feed Pelicans at The Entrance

There are several activities that you must experience when staying at Crowne Plaza Terrigal Pacific. This is one of them.

Apart from the exquisite beaches and natural environment, Pelican Feeding at The Entrance is considered the most popular tourist attraction on the Central Coast. The event operates 3:30pm daily, 7 days a week, every day of the year. By participating, visitors have the opportunity to learn about the pelicans and other interesting information about the area.

Pelican feeding started over twenty years ago, when staff at a local fish and chips shop threw out their scraps. The pelicans soon grew accustomed to their free meals and would cross the road and wait patiently outside the shop if the staff were late.

Art and Culture

Art galleries and exhibitions abound on the Central Coast, showcasing local and international talent. If it’s your own talent that you would like to nurture, there are also many art classes and programmes that run throughout the year.
