The Entrance is one of the closest spots to Sydney that begins to offer a true feeling that you’re removed from the busy city, with its defining great lake and clear beaches. It’s a well-noted stop-off for a picnic as you head further up the coast – a hit with the kids because of the pelicans that flock around the town and get an official feeding every afternoon. And if they’re not worn out by then, take them to the giant waterslide, the war museum, or nearby Wyrrabalong National Park.
