A place where Mother Earth meets urban living, Avalon Beach offers an idyllic, tranquil lifestyle away from the hustle and bustle of Sydney’s CBD.
Surrounded by bushland and bordered by the calm waters of Pittwater and the rolling waves of the Pacific Ocean, locals are all about living in the great outdoors.
Avalon Beach takes centre stage with its rugged coastline, deep golden-hued sand and crashing waves. Surfers can be seen year round vying for the perfect wave. At the southern end of the beach, the ocean pool attracts young families while the adventurous take to the rocky ledges to jump into the deep blue sea.
Boating culture reigns supreme along Pittwater. Many homes cascade down into the bay, many come with their own jetty. Avalon Sailing Club is a focal point for seafaring adventures – whether by kayak or yacht, all take to the water with Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park as the backdrop.
In the midst of all of this is the laid-back village with its selection of organic and alfresco dining, health food stores, and boutique shopping catering to the sun-loving surfie, the health conscious and the well-heeled alike.
The lifestyle of Avalon Beach draws in families of all shapes and sizes with professional parents at the helm along with retirees. Once a popular stomping ground for hippies during the 1960s and 70s, many of the long-term locals have become successful but have retained elements of their free-spirited youth.
