The Central Coast is located on the coast of New South Wales, 60 to 90 kilometres north of the Sydney CBD, and about 80 kilometres south of the Newcastle CBD.
Our easy-to-use online tools provide an insight into the current and future demographics of the local government area, our planning areas, suburbs and “communities of interest” profiles. This data will help you understand who makes up our community, how it has changed over time, how it compares to other areas and how our population will grow.
The tools are designed to assist investors, business, students, visitors, state and non-government agencies, community groups and Council staff. The information is of benefit for planning, service delivery, advocacy, grant funding and school projects.
Information is derived from the Australian Bureau of Statistics Census of Population and Housing and the National Institute of Economic and Industry Research.
