The Springs opens on NSW Central Coast


Recently opened, The Springs is a new day trip destination for Sydneysiders and locals who want to wine, dine and relax at picturesque Peats Ridge on the Central Coast.

Featuring an 18-hole golf course and new club, the property now features two dining spaces developed by International Executive Chef, Mario Schwallie (ex Brasserie in London, Gleneagles in Scotland and Cambridge Beaches Resort and Spa in Bermuda).


Now open on the NSW Central Coast, The Springs offers two dining options and a golf course ideal for corporate days.

The Sitting Duck is a casual industrial space featuring great food complemented by an excellent Australian and overseas wine list designed by Peter Bourne.

The menu focuses on fresh seasonal produce. “We make everything in house from our relishes, pickles, jams, pates and more – using local produce where possible,” explained Schwallie. “My goal is to provide our guests with a remarkable dining experience every time.”


The space offers custom created menus for your event.

The venue can also cater for a range of stylish special events and functions, including sit down dinners (up to 200 guests) and cocktail parties (up to 370 guests), and a custom created menu by Schwaille to suit your occasion.

At The Duck Inn enjoy tapas and fabulous burgers. Guests can eat in, at the bar, or relax on one of the lounges on the veranda. Take in the peaceful rural view – it will seem like you’re miles from anywhere yet still so close to the city.

Guests can also enjoy 9 or 18 holes of golf any time of the year, including most public holidays. In summer, there’s twilight golf on offer – watch the sunset before heading to the Duck Inn for a cocktail.

A fleet of modern club cars are on hand to ferry you in style on the fairway, while The Pro Shop stocks funky designer golf apparel and accessories – everything needed to look the part on the course.

“I wanted The Springs to be a whole new concept in a Golf Club,” says director Jill Seckold. “It’s a funky, unique space for all to enjoy – there’s a Cocktail bar, a great Bistro and a lounge for those that just want to chill.”

The Springs is located in Peats Ridge, a 40-minute drive from Newcastle and 30 minutes from Wahroonga.
