Darkinjung People

The Central Coast is located on Darkinjung land with over 7,000 registered Aboriginal sites. We pay our respect to these lands and their people. We acknowledge those ancestors that defended, walked and managed these lands for many generations before us and who have left a legacy of strong cultural, wisdom and knowledge embedded in these lands today.

It’s no doubt that we’ve experienced a surge in popularity with many people moving to the coast from surrounding regions, especially Sydney. According to the NSW Department of Planning & Infrastructure’s Central Coast Regional Strategy, the Central Coast population is expected to increase by over 16% + between 2006-2031.
