TERRIGAL

Get to know
the area

Famous for its idyllic white sand beach, great surfing, swimming and snorkelling conditions, but when it comes to land-based activities, the Esplanade – Terrigal's social centre with shops, bars and a lively café culture, holds centre stage. Holidaymakers head here on weekends and in the summer, but it's the locals who are lucky enough to enjoy Terrigal's laid-back lifestyle year round.

Lifestyle

Surrounded by natural beauty, Terrigal residents spend much of their time outdoors. On any given day, you can spot them swimming, surfing, fishing, snorkelling, boating and water skiing in the sparkling sea that's on their doorstep. Just behind the beach, Terrigal Lagoon is a peaceful spot to swim and relax, but if land-based activities are more your style, Terrigal has you covered there too.

The Esplanade is a pretty and practical hive of activity, home to a string of cafés, restaurants, bars and boutiques. There are many dining options, and the various pubs and cocktail bars buzz on evenings and weekends. The strip caters to most shopping needs, while larger complexes like Erina Fair are just a short drive away.

Many commute to work in Sydney or other Central Coast hubs via nearby Gosford station. Those who drive hop on the M1, which takes them to Sydney or Newcastle. For families, there are parks, playgrounds and sporting fields aplenty and an unbeatable lifestyle steps from the beach. Terrigal is an ideal place to raise a family and foster an active lifestyle from an early age.

Area Features

TERRIGAL BEACH

This stretch of golden sand is the suburb's pride and joy, and for good reason: it's patrolled during the warmer months, and known for its excellent surfing, swimming and fishing conditions. At the south end, there's an ocean rock pool and Terrigal Haven, a boat harbour with scuba diving, snorkelling, picnic and BBQ facilities.

TERRIGAL ESPLANADE

The Esplanade is Terrigal's social hub, with a string of lively cafes, restaurants, boutiques and shops just steps from the beach. Lined with Norfolk Pines, it's beautiful and buzzing, especially on the weekends when Sydneysiders drive up to enjoy what the beachside town has to offer. 

SKILLION LOOKOUT

A well-known landmark, Skillion Lookout is a steep cliff that faces the ocean, offering panoramic views across the Central Coast. To reach the headland, locals walk up a flat, grassy reserve, and at the top there's a sporting oval and walking trails.
