Hardys Bay Club is a small not-for-profit Community Club offering members and visitors a place to relax and socialise in beautiful Hardys Bay.  


Located at the southern-end of the Central Coast, the Club is centrally located on the Bouddi Peninsular which encompasses the villages of Killcare, Hardys Bay, Pretty Beach and Wagstaffe, and near neighbours Macmasters Beach, Empire Bay and Bensville.  The Bouddi Peninsular is an area blessed with beautiful beaches, tranquil waterways and unspoilt bushland. The perfect place to chill-out!


The Club backs onto the Bouddi National Park with a natural waterfall (when the creek is running) and where you are likely to see kookaburras, king parrots, cockatoos and the occasional brush turkey.

The rustic log cabin building with its large outdoor deck, grassed courtyard and covered pergola has been the Club’s home for over 40 years, and has been the venue of many community functions and music events,  aside from providing the local community with a comfortable place to meet for a meal, a drink and a chat.   

The Club offers patrons a family-friendly and dog-friendly atmosphere with regular live music and great conversation.

Restaurant and Bar

As of August 2020, the Club will have a new team managing the onsite dining/kitchen here at Hardys Bay Club.   "Hardys Hideaway" will offer all your favourite classic pub meals.  Visit the "Dining" page to find out more about the venue and hours etc.

Weddings and Functions

All functions & events have been cancelled until further notice.The Club is a great venue for Weddings and Functions utilising the outdoor courtyard and pergola, surrounded by a beautiful bushland setting. 

Live Music

Given we are still in the early stages of reopening, we are working to confirm our live music calendar.   Follow us on facebook or check back to view our "What's On" page as things progress.

We hope to return to a range of live music acts including local and touring artists covering blues, jazz, rock, country and everything in-between.  From music jams to selected ticketed events by well-known touring artists, where there is always something happening.

No Pokies

We must be one of the very few Clubs without poker machines but for those who want to have a flutter we offer TAB and KENO. 


Supporting Local

Being a small Club, we depend heavily on the continued support of local residents and visitors to the Bouddi Peninsular and, likewise, we endeavour to support local businesses when sourcing our produce and services for the Club. 


Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

From our hand-made wedding centrepieces to second-hand furniture, and vases, stools and decorations from recycled materials, we try to limit the amount we throw away or buy brand-new.

The Club is 90 minutes from Sydney CBD or a fantastic 30 minute ferry ride from Palm Beach to Wagstaffe, a 5 minute ferry from Ettalong or a 70 minute train ride from Central to Woy Woy station.   We can arrange pick up and drop of for visitors coming to the Club via the ferry to Wagstaffe.  Local residents can contact the Club for pick up by our Club Shuttle Bus.
