Bilgola Beach ?

What a striking and elegant beach, nestled in a tropical oasis of palm trees between two headlands. It really is one of Sydney?s best kept secrets, for those looking for an intimate beach, you cannot go past Bilgola. There is a steep drive down to the beach from Barrenjoey Road; be careful not to miss the turn off. Bilgola is named after an Aboriginal word meaning ?swirling waters?. There is a surf club and a lovely quaint rock pool with limited parking available. Catch the bus L90 from Wynyard or the 191 from Newport Beach.

Avalon Beach ?

Is situated between Bilgola Beach and Whale Beach and is an attractive suburb to stop and spend some time strolling through the shops. There are some excellent cafes and restaurants. The beach is favoured for picnics with beautiful shady trees, BBQ facilities with picnic tables. There is a pretty rock pool at the southern end of the beach. Take time to do a short drive down Avalon Parade and visit Clareville Beach , it?s an exquisite charming beach, oozing with heaps of character, for somewhere special to eat there is no better place than Clareville Kiosk.
