Central Coast Council

In the past fifty years, our region has undergone a dramatic shift from being primarily a rural locality and tourism destination to a popular and affordable residential choice due to the natural assets of beaches, lakes and national parks and the proximity to Sydney and Newcastle.

This rapid growth has created interesting challenges for Council to meet the immediate and long-term needs of our community. Improved infrastructure and creating local jobs to cater for our region’s high unemployment and large commuter population are just two of Council’s goals.

In ten years’ time we see the Central Coast as a prosperous and self-sufficient region – a place that people aspire to live and visit.

Placed in the top 3 % of the world's universities, the University of Newcastle has world class researchers and teachers right here in our community. The University holds the unique position as the most research-intensive university outside an Australian capital city.

On the Central Coast, the University of Newcastle provides our students with the opportunity to study a broad range of degree programs in outstanding facilities many of which are purpose-built to replicate industry situations. Our degrees provide real-world experience for our students to hit the ground running in their chosen career.

Working in partnership with business, industry and community the University of Newcastle - Central Coast can create the knowledge and capability to help grow the Central Coast as a destination for world-class research, innovation and learning.
