About Avoca Beach and North Avoca
Avoca Beach sits between Terrigal and Copacabana at the lower end of the NSW Central Coast and offers a huge range of accommodation from resorts to bed and breakfasts.
It is a quality, fun holiday place with the focus very much on the beach lifestyle. The terrific little village has a great character with a range of old houses and impressive new homes looking down from the cliff tops. Some of these have become holiday apartments or self-contained cottages or bed and breakfasts.
Lifesavers patrol Avoca Beach and North Avoca Beach through the Summer months ensuring that it is safe for the whole family. Sitting between two headlands, Avoca Beach offers a level of surfing for the novice at one end to the more experienced surfer at the other. It is also an ideal spot for fishing and swimming for all ages.
The very active Avoca Beach Surf Life Saving Club was created in 1929 after two people drowned there. It has grown considerably over the years and relocated to its present dominant position. International surfers are drawn to the Pines Charity Surf Classic held each Summer just before Christmas.
Just behind the beach is Avoca Lake which is a great still-water swimming spot for the younger family members and offers lovely walks and pleasant picnic areas.
Pedal boats, kayaks and surf skis are available for hire on weekends and through school holidays from September to April.
Next to the beach you’ll find apartments, cosmopolitan restaurants and a range of quality boutiques.
As well as all the available water sports, the local entertainment includes a movie cinema, art galleries, picnics on the foreshore reserves and whale watching from Captain Cook Lookout during the whale season.
Captain Cook Lookout is one of the finest lookouts on the Central Coast with panoramic views North and South. It can be reached by following the beachfront road up to the headland which is called First point. Captain Cook first documented the area in 1770 as he was heading up the coast in the Endeavour and he noticed the three prominent headlands which he creatively named First Point, Second Point and Third Point.
History of Avoca Beach
Aboriginal people inhabited the area before the Europeans settled in the 1830's when land grants were first made to an Irish Army Officer named John Moore. With his land grant in his hand, built a homestead and named the 640 acres 'Avoca', a Celtic name for "great estuary", or "where the river meets the sea". Cereal, fruit and grape crops were planted in the area but its proximity to major population centres as well as the superb beaches made its popularity as a holiday destination inevitable.
The original homestead burned down in the 1850’s and the entire are was leased to a timber merchant in the late 19th century. At the time, logs were transported by tram to the mill at Terrigal. Tramway Road in North Avoca is part of the old tram route.
Avoca, Avoca Beach and North Avoca are all perfect holiday locations whether you wish to have a romantic weekend away for two or enjoy a fun filled family holiday.
