EXPLORING WOY WOY




One of our favourite places to visit pre-kids used to be Hardy's Bay on Sydney's Central Coast. We would often drive up there to have lunch and just relax while watching the boats bob on the bay. I realised that I had yet to take all three children there and thought it might be a fun day trip (while more work was being done on the house). However, as we had a late start to our trip, which takes about 1.5 hours, lunch time was beckoning and I decided to stop at Woy Woy. I've been there quite a few times too. However, I've never had fish 'n' chips at The Fisherman's Wharf, and thought that might be fun with the children.

As it turns out, we didn't end up leaving this laid-back town on the Central Coast. It's one of the bigger towns in the area but not huge, and is located on a beautiful section of Brisbane Water. It's all quite flat and has several good-quality bike and walking tracks that hug the coastline. There's also a fair amount of wildlife too - from pelicans to ducks and marine life.

While we stayed in the area near The Fisherman's Wharf, it's a place you could spend the whole day - or longer - exploring. It's a popular place to take kayaks out onto the water, as well as boats, as the waters are calm and protected. You can also catch the train there from the city, and it is quite a beautiful journey in itself.

A local told me that if you hang around at The Fisherman's Wharf at about 3pm you get to see the pelicans being fed. I think they were getting ready for their treats when we were there.
