Waldorf The Entrance Apartment Hotel is located centrally to many National Parks and State Forrests.
Bouddi National Park: Bouddi National Park situated on 1,216 hectares is one of the first National Parks in New South Wales where all marine life is protected. This park also has a series of small beautiful beaches beneath forests, steep hills and cliffs.
Brisbane Waters National Park: Brisbane Waters National Park is 11,455 hectares. There are sandstone landscapes rich in Aboriginal art with engravings at Bulgandry on Woy Woy Road and water views from Warrah Trig and Staples lookouts. Somersby Falls and Girrakool picnic areas have excellent picnic facilities, fishing spots and rainforest walks.
Watagan State Forrest: The Watagan State Forest is part of a chain of state forests which start from Ourimbah in the south and stretch north to Cessnock. The most well known is the Watagan as it contains not only beautiful mountain scenery but has all the necessary facilities for bushwalkers, four wheel drivers and campers.
Wyrrabalong National Park: Divided into two sections, Wyrrabalong National Park conserves the last significant coastal (littoral) rainforest on the Central Coast. Rocky cliffs pounded by the sea alternate with sandy beaches and you can enjoy dramatic coastal vistas from several lookouts. A network of walking tracks will help you explore the varied landscape of the park, while the picnic areas are a place to rest and enjoy your surroundings.
Munmorah State Conservation Area: The highlights of the Munmorah State conservation Area is 12 km of rugged coastline which makes for a great area for water sports, coastal walks with magnificent ocean views and wildflower displays in spring.
Yengo National Park: Stretching over 70 km from Wisemans Ferry to the Hunter Valley, Yengo National Park is a wild area of steep gorges and rocky ridges, forming part of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage area. Mt Yengo is of cultural significance to local Aboriginal communities and the historic Old Great North Road, an intact example of early 19th century convict road-building, follows the south-east boundary of the park.
Dharug National Park: Steeped in history and abounding in natural wonders, Dharug National Park's multi-coloured sandstone landscape protects vital clear-water tributaries. The historic Old Great North Road is an intact and spectacular example of early 19th century road-building as well as a lesson in planning gone wrong. Abandoned even before it was finished, it took the toil and sweat of convicts to quarry, dress and shift the huge sandstone blocks that form the road's striking retaining walls and bridges. You can also experience the park's natural beauty on one of its many great walking tracks.
