Tumbi Umbi is a residential and semi rural suburb
located about mid-way between the coast and
Tuggerah on Wyong Road.
Central to its being is the largest licensed club in
the region, Mingara Recreation Club and adjacent
Glengara Retirement Village and a growing number
of fast food outlets along with a small industrial area.
Ourimbah is located near the junction of the Sydney
– Newcastle Freeway and is serviced by a scheduled
train service between Sydney and Newcastle.
Ourimbah might best be described as a ‘university
town’ with the University of Newcastle’s Central
Coast Campus located here along with Hunter
Central Coast TAFE Campus and the Central Coast
A small retail village services the surrounding
residential area and the Campus.
Electricity utility, Ausgrid’s Regional Support
Facility employing about 300 staff on the corner of
Ourimbah Creek Road and Pacific Highway services
the entire region.
The Department of Planning’s draft Central Coast
Regional Strategy for employment lands has identified
fourteen areas as strategic employment areas.
Gosford local government area (LGA)
• Somersby (300 ha),
• West Gosford (125 ha),
• Lisarow (50 ha),
• North Gosford (25 ha,
• Erina (10 ha) and
• Proposed Mount Penang Business Park (130 ha).
Wyong local government area (LGA)
• Tuggerah Business Park and Berkeley Vale (200 ha),
• North Wyong (125 ha),
• Tuggerah (60 ha),
• Charmhaven (35 ha), and
• Proposed Wyong Employment Zone (360 ha) of
which Warnervale Industrial Park is already being
developed. (Wyong Employment Zone (WEZ)
includes Warnervale Airport.)
Adjacent to the Wyong Employment Zone is a much
larger area, Bushells Ridge (630 ha), which has been
identified for development. This area comprises land
owned by the Wallarah No 2 Coal Joint Venture and
the Darkinjung Aboriginal Land Council.
With no new land proposed to be zoned for
employment purposes in the Gosford LGA it will
be seen that the northern industrial areas and
proposed industrial areas of the region, all adjacent
to the Sydney – Newcastle Freeway (M1), offer the
most opportunities for future growth.
These areas are described in more detail on the
Wyong Local GovernmentArea

region’s premier business location.
