Welcome to the Warnervale Rugby Club, where you can enjoy playing good rugby with a great team of players, supporters and officials, as well as enjoy your off-field experiences just as much.

At just over an hours drive north of Sydney NSW along the F3 the Warnervale area has proven to be a popular place for people to settle down, as well as a great place for family holidays.

In the Warnervale area you will discover vibrant nightlife, friendly clubs and pubs, great shopping, golden sandy beaches, schools and university, hospital, and scenic national parks. The area boasts an endless array of water activities including boating, fishing, surfing and water skiing. Also, the scuttling of the ex navy frigate HMAS Adelaide, 1.8 kms from the nearby shoreline has created an artificial dive wreck for scuba diving. Moving inland, the region's National Parks and State Forests are a haven for bushwalkers, campers and 4wds alike.

Contributing to the Warnervale area are its magnificent golf courses, scenic horse riding trails and a great many single and family entertainment options.

Playing fields


ground layout

The Wildcats have a fantastic home ground facility, and it was a proud day when the first team ran out onto the turf on Saturday 20th June 2010.

Woongarah Sporting Field (Hakone Oval) is a magnificent dual-field facility, and a credit to Wyong Shire Council, and the persistence of John McNamara (Wildcats Patron and Past President). The players, committee, supporters and parents have been "blown away" with what has been achieved over the past few years. The Wildcats look forward to many enjoyable seasons playing at a facility which really could be called the "pride of the Central Coast".

The six main beaches in the Warnervale/Wyong area are under the watchful patrol of lifesavers and professional lifeguards - usually from early spring until late autumn.

The main local beaches are:- Lakes, Soldiers, The Entrance North, The Entrance, Toowoon Bay and Shelly Beaches. Each of these beaches is only a short drive away from the Warnervale Wildcats home ground.

During the summer school holidays, lifeguards and lifesavers usually remain on the beach until 6pm, with the possibility of extending those hours in extremely hot conditions.

When you have finished on the beaches or in the pubs and clubs, there is still plenty to offer in the Warnervale/Wyong area. A 10 minute drive from the Wildcat's home ground is one of the largest shopping centres in Australia. The Westfield shopping complex in Tuggerah has 260 stores for your shopping convenience. There is ample parking, both undercover and outdoor, which takes a lot of stress out of shopping.

With most major banks and supermarkets under one roof you can get the 'chores' out of the way then reward yourself with a choice from many of the fine cafe's and restaurants, health and beauty stores or treat yourself to a little trinket from the many gift ware or jewellery stores.

There are large supermarket stores like Aldi, Coles, Woolies open for long hours, as well as department stores like David Jones, Big W, Target. Westfield Tuggerah has courtesy buses and free all day parking

Having your own transport is great, but not absolutely necessary in the Warnervale surrounds. There are many bus routes in the area, and the Wildcat's home ground is only a few minutes to Warnervale Station for fast train service to either Sydney or Newcastle.

The F3 freeway is also only a few minutes drive from our home ground, and you can be driving to Sydney, Newcastle, Queensland, or Victoria in no time.


Hunter Valley wineries

Just over an hour's drive north of Warnervale on the F3 expressway is one of Australia's best tourist spots, the Hunter Valley wineries.

The Hunter Valley is recognised as the birthplace of the multi-billion dollar-a-year wine making industry. The Hunter is renowned for its full-bodied white wines, 'medium weight reds' and some excellent ports. Some of the vineyards belong to big name companies such as Lindemans, McWilliams, Rothbury, Wyndham Estate and McGuigan. Others, like Tyrells and Draytons, are very old Hunter Valley family concerns, which have been there for several generations and remained independent. There are small boutique vineyards such as Kelmans, which is a residentual vineyard complex. The range of wines in the Hunter Valley is endless.

Wine tasting in the Hunter is now an institution and an excellent introduction to the variety and quality of Australian wine. The majority of wineries open daily, not just on weekends and public holidays. Visitors are provided with tasting glasses and given a small taste of each wine in the maker's range of current vintages. Knowledgeable staff and often the winemaker will explain each wine, what grapes it is made of, whether it needs to be cellared, and so on. Tastings are small, but as most people prefer to drink them than 'spit them out', sensibly so.
