About Opera in the Arboretum

Opera in the Arboretum!

This annual charity event is a function held by the Rotary Club of Woy Woy. Considered the cultural event of Pearl Beach and indeed, the Central Coast, Opera in the Arboretum attracts a great number of people annually.

How to get to Pearl Beach!

You can get to Pearl Beach by via various travel means and routes.

By road from Sydney (approx. 95 Kilometres), driving north via the Sydney-Newcastle (F3) freeway, exiting at Gosford/Somersby turn-off Via Kariong  or West Gosford for Woy Woy.  At Woy Woy proceed via Umina following the direction signs to Pearl Beach.

By Rail from Sydney, take Inter-City rail services from Central or Strathfield Stations to Woy Woy.  Weekend bus services operate from Woy Woy Station via Umina but for Opera in the Arboretum this method is not recommended.  Taxis are also available from Woy Woy Station.

What to bring!

This is an open air event amidst the beauty of the native forest. We recommend you only bring director-style chair/s and if you wish, one small table not larger that one metre square - 1 m2 and a picnic hamper and drinks and wear clothing applicable for the weather. Remember, in the village there is only the Pearl Beach General Store and Café and this is located some distance from the venue. So self-catering is recommended. Excellent coffee can be purchased onsite.

To those bringing young children, we ask that they be supervised and noise be kept to a minimum during performances.

Medical assistance will be available onsite if required.
