Lantern parade returns for Australia Day
Australia Day activities will take place from 2pm to 9pm along the Woy Woy waterfront on January 26.
The Lantern Festival will return this year with a community procession of lanterns through the streets of Woy Woy, culminating in three lanterns floating across the water's edge.
Council is currently holding a series of workshops across the Central Coast to create the three lanterns.
A whale lantern will be made at workshops taking place at the Peninsula Community Centre throughout January.
The festivities will conclude with a traditional fireworks display over the water.
The day will include a variety of children's activities, food and market stalls, community displays and a large line-up of live music and entertainment headlined by the band The Nevilles.
Central Coast Council will provide an accessibility tent as a specialist service, designed to ensure all members of the community can enjoy community events.
Road closures will be in effect in Woy Woy from 6am on Australia Day: The Boulevarde, Brick Wharf Rd in the west from Oval Ave and in the east from Tennis Court Lane will be closed from 6am and reopen at 10pm.
Residents will have limited access from 6am to 1pm with a full closure in effect at the end of Brick Wharf Rd from Oval Ave to the link road through to the tennis courts and carpark.
