The Entrance Boat House is one of few remaining traditional boat hire establishments left on the Coast. The boats are traditional wooden boats supplemented by kayaks and SUPs. Many families enjoy experiencing a day on the water in one of these boats.

Such a delight so see a lovely old Boast shed still exists at The Entrance. You can rent boats for fishing in the Tuggerah Lakes, or canoes for a paddle around. Staff are very friendly

Excellent value for money, you can hire rods for just 10 dollars! The boats are tired looking but do the job and the prices are very reasonable. We hired a half cabin boat one day and also stand up paddle boards another day..
