Mount Penang Parklands
HCCDC owns and manages the Central Coast's Mount Penang Parklands precinct, a destination for tourism, events, business and education.

HCCDC supports local initiatives that enhance and celebrate the communities of the Hunter and Central Coast regions, and align with our strategic objectives.
Through the Honeysuckle urban renewal project, the Government has paved the way for private sector investment to deliver new homes, jobs and economic activity.
