Whenever I go to The Entrance we always end up down at the park and feeding the pelicans. The kids love it, especially running in and through the water play area and on the rides

Many great eateries and a beachside, festive atmosphere. The pelican feeding at 3.30pm was a great activitiy for children and the later hours the businesses kept were convenient.

The town centre is delightful, with added highlight of feeding of the Pelicans every day. It is an awesome sight. There is also a wonderful playground for kiddies to enjoy right there. Cafes and gelateria bars are nearby and there is a lovely walk along the lake foreshore to enjoy.

Why not use colourful tile replacement? Tiles are bland and cheap looking. Also it's a shame the markets were moved to Wyong, the tourist area is at The Beautiful Entrance, hardly any stalls now such a bad decision

Not a lot of Atmosphere, none at night and very little for a Saturday when the Sun is out, to keep tourists and locals entertained. Even just a busker, would of been nice .

Visited here for the first time at the weekend and we were impressed by the ambiance of the lake foreshore development. The mall, play and activity centre, train ride and the retail outlets adjacent to the park which was, at the time being set up for Harmony Day activities, attracted a huge crowd out and about after the rains.

Great place to bring the kids and family. Young ones can play in the water park area or on the playground equipment. There is a beautiful park to run around in with bbbq available. Usually a fun fair is open during the summer months.
