All About Terrigal
A popular holiday destination since the 19th century, Terrigal attracts visitors to its prized location on New South Wales’ Central Coast, close to one of the region’s most noticeable features: Skillion, a grassy headland that rises up almost like a ramp as you approach the sea, with dramatic cliff faces surrounding it. When you climb to the edge of this lookout point, you can see North Avoca Beach to the south and Terrigal Beach to the north, stretching out four kilometres as far as the Wamberal Lagoon Nature Reserve.
This seaside resort is known for the quality of its sand and the variety of water sports that you can try. As you walk along the front, which is lined with Norfolk pine trees, you’ll see people at Terrigal Haven at Broken Bay paddleboarding, kayaking, and snorkelling. Passing by Terrigal Beach, many people will be swimming in the refreshing waters and playing on the shore. And as you approach Wamberal Beach, you’ll notice surfers lining up off Wamberal Point on a quest for the perfect wave. After a day on the ocean, refuel at the town’s seafood restaurants and get a taste of the buzzing local nightlife.
How do I get around Terrigal?
The closest airport to Terrigal is Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport (SYD), which is around 90 minutes away by car, which you can rent at the airport. If traveling by public transport, you first need to take the rapid 12-minute train link from the airport to Central Station in Sydney. You can then get on a train to Gosford — the closest station to Terrigal — which is a journey of around 1.5 hours. Terrigal does not have a mainline train station, so you either need to take the regular bus from Gosford that takes around 30 minutes or grab a taxi to your holiday house in Terrigal. There’s also a smaller regional airport in Newcastle (NTL), which is around 90 minutes north of town and has rail connections with nearby Gosford. Local buses are available to a handful of destinations in the area.
When is the best time to stay in a holiday rental in Terrigal?
Terrigal is primarily a seaside resort, so if you want to take advantage of all the activities on the beach, the best time to come is in the summer. This is when all the attractions will be open and temperatures are warm, with hot sunshine aplenty during the day. If you arrive in the late spring or early autumn, temperatures will still be pleasant and the beaches less busy. A popular time to visit Terrigal is between May and November, as this is the season when you can head out on a cruise into the sea to spot whales and dolphins as they pass by the area. If you’re looking for artwork and crafts made in the local area, the Terrigal Beach Markets are held on the first Saturday of the month.
What are the top things to do in Terrigal?
If you prefer your water sports without waves, head to the coastal lagoon of Avoca Lake, which features mangroves and wetlands. You can hire a pedal boat to get around the lake or have a go at paddleboarding. Fig trees provide shade for relaxing and refuelling with a picnic.
Bouddi Coastal Walk
Follow the 8-kilometre coastal walk along Bouddi National Park to appreciate the splendour of the scenery, from stunning bays to bushland and coastal cliffs. Break your walk with swims at the various beaches, including Maitland Bay and Bullimah Beach, take in the views from the Gerrin Point Lookout, and marvel at the tessellated pavement.
Wyrrabalong National Park
Drive 20 minutes north of the town to Wyrrabalong National Park to explore a different coastline. This is a coastal rainforest, where you can follow a walking trail with dramatic views of the cliffs, beaches, and the red gum forest. Stop at Crackneck Lookout to rest your legs and try to spot different birds, including kestrels and eagles, along with hang gliders.
