Copacabana is a suburb located on the Central Coast of New South Wales, Australia, as part of the Central Coast Council local government area. Copacabana (so named by real estate developers Willmore and Randell, in the mid twentieth century) is situated at the northern end of Macmasters Beach, the two beaches divided by Cochrone Lagoon. The northern headland of Copacabana beach is Tudibaring Point, purported to mean 'place where the waves pound like a beating heart' in the local indigenous language. The bay itself is Allagai, which means "nest of snakes" in the same language.
