Would you like Whats On Central Coast To Divert Some Of Their
1.8 MILLION Plus Visitors
To Your Website Or Business?

What's On Central Coast is an exciting and dynamic concept that caters equally to the local community and the domestic and international tourist trade. This trade forms the backbone of the Central Coast of NSW. It recently made local history by becoming the only website of its kind to break the one million visitor barrier.

Whats On Central Coast is an initiative of Debbi Lalor, a genuine Central Coast local and the website is the original and at the time of its inception much needed support for the Central Coast entertainment and tourism Industries.

Prior to Whats On Central Coast there was a distinct lack of quality online and print entertainment content for the Central Coast region – but not anymore!

Through 13 years of dedication to the Central Coast, its businesses and Community; we know what works and the best way to help you alleviate the stress and worry of driving customers to your business.

Experience, being genuinely local and the 'go-to', one-stop-spot reference tool for most things Central Coast is what sets us apart from new and very similar websites.

This Whats On Central Coast initiative has been an invaluable information resource and inspiration for other existing and new local websites and media.

You will find much of the Whats On information utilised throughout the web, on-air and in print.

Don't get caught with pumped up and purchased FaceBook statistics; sometimes they are not a true reflection of the website traffic. Always ask for and check the actual website statistics.
The Whats On Central Coast Facebook page has more than 6,500 genuine likes so can further increase your potential reach.

Whats On Central Coast also uses the popular StatCounter statistics website for a more comprehensive look into our statistics to not only help us improve this innovative tool but to guide us to better assist your needs for the 'maximum benefit' placement of your advertising.

To assist with the almost instant, explosive ‘response to demand’ and subsequent expansion of the Whats On Central Coast website; Whats On Central Coast also has sub-domains of Central Coast Gig Guides, Whats Hot Central Coast, and other .com.au domains owned, operated and very importantly, hosted here in the safety of Australian servers through CKL Web Concepts.

Always look for the familiar green, gold and blue Coastal colours and know you are on the original and best website for information on the Central Coast of NSW.

So grab your beverage of choice and take a very interesting tour of my home town; The Central Coast of NSW; you are welcome to pop in and visit anytime!
