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

Community College.

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.

They include:

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

following pages.
