  Avalon Beach & cliffs
by balhannah

Avalon Beach is good for body surfing and surfing, also swimming is safe, with the main beach patrolled by surf lifesavers. At the southern end of the beach is a large saltwater pool which is great for children and adults who prefer the calm water. A Playground, picnic facilities, bbq's are located here. It's just a short walk to Avalon village which has cafes, restaurants, cinema and shops.

The beach is bordered by 60m high sandstone cliffs that they do abseiling on.

The beach is an hour's drive from the Sydney city centre. By bus takes at least a quarter hour more.

Directions: Avalon Beach lies between two headlands in Sydney's Northern Beaches region just east of, and a short walk from, Barrenjoey Rd. Off Barrenjoey Road. Take the Wynyard Newport Bus 191, Wynyard Bus 190.
