It may be a holiday hotspot during the summer, but residents enjoy Avoca Beach’s laid-back yet active lifestyle year-round. The beach is the suburb’s beating heart, and on any given day, locals can be spotted swimming in the ocean and the rock pools or vying for the perfect wave.

One of the bigger events on the calendar is the 5 Lands Walk which celebrates the Central Coast’s multiculturalism. It follows the coastline from Macmasters Beach to Terrigal, and involves free events at each of the beaches along the way. The event coincides with the northern migration of the humpback whales.

As for shopping and dining, Avoca Village has a string of cafés, restaurants, shops and grocery stores, and there are bigger complexes in nearby suburbs such as Erina and Terrigal. In recent years, Avoca Beach has become a foodie favourite, attracting people from all over the coast. There’s also a family-run cinema and pub in town – both are local institutions.

Neighbours

Avoca Beach is a family-friendly haven, and there is a good mix of families with school-age and older children, as well as empty nesters. It’s also popular with retirees, who love the slow-paced, laid-back lifestyle that comes with coastal living. While some residents commute to Sydney for work, most work in and around the Central Coast. The area is home to people of all ages and from all walks of life, but they share a strong community spirit and appreciation for their beautiful beachside village.
