Terrigal

Terrigal is one of the Central Coast’s most iconic seaside towns, growing since the 60s into a favoured holiday destination for Sydneysiders. It’s little wonder why this vibrant village is so popular: time spent at Terrigal can involve brunching, swimming, shopping, lunching, diving, dining, fishing, paddling, surfing and socialising. This place is essentially summertime, bottled.

Photo opportunity: capture the view over Terrigal village from The Haven coastal walking track and its Skillion landmark
