The Springs - Sitting Duck

Foodies Delight
Some of Australia’s finest culinary gems are found right here on the coast.

Something has been steadily building on the Central Coast for last 15 years. A new wave of chefs, brewers, restaurateurs and patrons have been pushing the culinary bounds forward and putting the region on the national and global foodie map. 

It's no longer about good "pub grub" (although this can be found in spades), the Central Coast is now home to some fantastic eclectic treats as well as excellent fine dining treats. To make your stay easier, or your choices more difficult, we've collated a list of the coasts best:

Sitting Duck @ The Springs

The Sitting Duck bistro is located in picturesque Peats Ridge, serving fresh and fabulous dishes, with produce straight from farm to plate. With weekday, weekend and seasonal menus, you’ll always find something to tempt you. 

Firescreek Winery

The winery opened its cellar doors in December 2003 to offer you a seasonal variety of boutique fruit flower and herb wines.

Bells at Killcare

Located at the heart of the Bells at Killcare Boutique Hotel, this delightful restaurant commands a prominent position in the Manor House with an elegant 70 seat dining room and fully enclosed al-fresco verandah overlooking stunning manicured gardens.

Six String Brewery

Six String Brewing Company is the Central Coast's first 100% homegrown microbrewery producing a range of quality handcrafted ales including Hefeweizen, Golden Ale, Pale Ale, ESB, and Red IPA in addition to limited seasonal releases. All of our beers are free of additives, preservatives and are unpasteurized. The taproom is open to the public for tastings and growler fills, while our Cajun inspired restaurant serves up Southern style fare, well suited to the range of ales on offer.

Pinocchios Wine Bar

Pinocchios was born out of a conviction for wine - a means to share and express a deep and passionate appreciation for the vineyards of Italy and around the world. Pinocchios is a destination to be enjoyed by the masses, with hidden subtleties reserved for those who seek them out. We welcome and encourage you to explore and experience Pinocchios Wine and Pizza.
