Matcham

Suburb Profile

Overview

A semi-rural postcode with an affluent air, Matcham is nestled between the beach and the city on Sydney’s popular Central Coast, providing residents with the best of both worlds.

A sprawling, green suburb 11 kilometres east of Gosford and seven kilometres north of Terrigal, Matcham is a highly sought-after area for established couples and families. Lush greenery is everywhere you turn in this part of the Central Coast making you feel as though you’re in the middle of the countryside as opposed to the city. While its population might be small (just over 500), Matcham’s sheer size (141 square kilometres) is certainly impressive. Large open blocks, rambling acreages and mighty mansions fill the Matcham landscape, making for an idyllic Sunday drive for Gosford residents and Sydneysiders.

The impressive sizes of properties in Matcham leave little room for suburb amenities. Luckily, Matcham is ideally located within easy distance to local amenities in neighbouring Erina, Gosford and Terrigal. Along with generous land sizes, Matcham is located a few kilometres away from the Central Coast Highway, ensuring complete peace and quiet for locals. And if the quiet gets too quiet, just travel a few minutes east and you’ll find some of the most popular beaches on the Central Coast including Terrigal, Forresters Beach, and Bateau Bay.

While the Central Coast might be one of the busiest central business districts in New South Wales, Matcham has managed to remain a serene semi-rural haven within easy reach of all necessary amenities.
