A Taste of the 5 Lands Walk.

On Saturday the 23rd June 2018, Central Coast residents and visitors alike are invited to participate in the iconic 5 Lands Walk. Rapidly becoming a well known festival on the Central Coast, the 5 Lands Walk allows participants to enjoy the spectacular scenery along the 10km Central Coast coastal walking track, beginning at MacMasters beach and concluding at Crowne Plaza Terrigal Pacific where you can indulge in some gastronomic delights.

More than simply a scenic walk, the 5 Lands Walk is an all day festival that aims to connect people to the local communities and landscape. Along the trail and at each of the five stops, walkers can enjoy food, live music and dance from multi-cultural communities. With a strong focus on local talent and connection, the festival will include highlights such as art and photo exhibitions, sculptures on the beach and aboriginal ceremonies.

The 5 Lands Walk Event is proudly held on the traditional lands of the Darkinjung people and there is a strong appreciation and acknowledgement of the Aboriginal people and their contribution to the 5 Lands Walk. The Aboriginal people are deeply involved in the 5 Lands Walk event and during the day will share their stories and explain the cultural and spiritual significance of the 5 lands in an effort to help participants understand their connection to the land.

One of the main visions for the 5 Lands Walk is that it will become a permanent attraction for the area rather than just a one day festival, with the walk available for people to do at anytime. As a major sponsor of the festival, Crowne Plaza Terrigal Pacific encourages this vision by inspiring hotel guests to enjoy and explore the local area. In 2017, the hotel commissioned a mural celebrating the 5 Lands Walk at the hotel’s entrance. The eye-catching mural is a collaborative work of local artist Paul Haggith, Indigenous artist Kevin Gavi Duncan and assistant artist Simon Sawell.

This June, to celebrate the 5 Lands Walk, Crowne Plaza Terrigal Pacific has introduced a 5 Lands Walk menu in Seasalt Restaurant. Executive Sous Chef Dana Chantler has taken inspiration from the festival’s philosophy of connecting people with people and people with place.

 

Seafood Tasting Plate – $38.

Dine on a tasting plate of grilled kingfish, seared scallops and spanner crab served with shaved fennel salad and native finger limes.

 

Wattleseed & Lemon Myrtle Cheesecake – $15.

Cheesecake with pecan crumb, lemon myrtle and wattleseed cream cheese mousse, and fresh berries is a dining delight you will want more of.

As the 5 Lands Walk track is located along the coast, Dana has used the Australian flavours of the bush and ocean as a main focus in these dishes. Utilising fresh, locally sourced produce from the Central Coast, Dana’s special menu highlights the connection to the land and the importance of our community. Experience Central Coast dining at its finest.
