Central Coast Conveyancing

COVID and Why More People Are Moving to the NSW Central Coast

The NSW Central Coast is attractive right now

The COVID-19 pandemic has fuelled a significant migration of CBD residents to more coastal areas like Gosford, Terrigal, and Bateau Bay on the NSW Central Coast.

For many people, lockdowns and social distancing have opened their eyes to the idea that where they live is no longer critical to earning and income. As a result, they are packing up their NBN modems and flocking to the NSW Central Coast, where some suburbs have experienced a surge of 20% in the last two years.

However, remote work and capital gains aren’t the only drawcards attracting new residents to these areas. As an experienced NSW conveyancing service, we get the inside track on what makes a region attractive for investment or settling down.

Here are just a few of the NSW Central Coast hotspots that many Sydney residents are escaping to.


Gosford is a hub featuring ocean vistas, bushland, and coastal forests. It’s an idyllic location experiencing significant growth in the last 12-months, with people flocking to take advantage of the remote work opportunities.


Terrigal offers the ultimate sea-change lifestyle, with restaurants, cafes, and businesses lining a gorgeous coastline. The beach can get busy, especially during the holidays, but never like Coogee or Bondi. The 3 km stretch of sand means plenty of room to escape the crowds.

Bateau Bay

Bateau Bay is a family-friendly location close to parks, schools, a lagoon, and a National Park. Internet infrastructure is reliable for telecommuters, and there is a shopping centre within easy travelling distance.


A small village in a National park and beautiful coastline will be a dream come true for families or professionals looking to escape the rat race and lockdowns. It may have a small population, and it’s not the cheapest area to settle down in, but it does enjoy some of the fastest internet speeds on the central coast.

Are you looking to swap the daily commute with a telecommute? The central coast still has plenty of opportunities for home buyers and investors.
