Woy Woy is a coastal village 40 km north of Sydney in the Central Coast region of New South Wales, Australia.


The name; Woy Woy is apparently taken from the local aboriginals of the area, the Darkinjung tribe. The words reputedly mean "deep water", referring to the deep tidal channel adjacent the town centre.

Get in[edit]

Woy Woy is on the main Northern railway line. Most services from Sydney Central via Strathfield, Epping, and Hornsby to Gosford and Newcastle stop at Woy Woy. Magnificent views of parts of the Hawkesbury River which are not accessible by road transport add to the enjoyment of the rail trip.

Get around[edit]
