The main urban cluster of the region surrounds the northern shore of Brisbane Water and includes the Coast's largest population centre, Gosford, stretching east to the retail centre of Erina.
Other major commercial "centres" on the Coast are Wyong, Tuggerah, Lakehaven, The Entrance, Terrigal, and Woy Woy.

As someone whose faith is important to you, it can be tricky to meet people you really click with and share your values. From humble beginnings back in 2001, Christians Online has become Australia's largest singles Christians dating website and has over 10,000 single Christian men and women just like you.
Large numbers of people who live in the southern part of the region commute daily to work in Sydney.
The Central Coast is also a popular tourist destination and a popular area for retirement.
You know they are there somewhere, but you just aren't meeting them! Countless Christians in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and all areas around Australia have enjoyed broadening their circle of Christian friends, beyond their Church alone.
We love hearing about how many members of our online Christian Community have been blessed with a new found relationship or marriage.
