Avoca Beach
 

Avoca Beach (including Copacabana)
Popular holiday resort and surfing destination on the Central Coast
Located 95 km north of Sydney via the Newcastle Freeway, Avoca Beach is a popular holiday resort and surfing area towards the southern end of a continuous stretch of residential coastline from MacMasters Beach in the south to The Entrance in the north. In recent times the Avoca Beach area has become a popular holiday retreat for the wealthy residents of Sydney's North Shore. Its wooded hills and quietness (it is on a road which does not go anywhere) is seen as ideal for family holidays and outings where the emphasis is on beach activities.

Once occupied by the Awabakal Aborigines the first European land grant in the vicinity was that of Irish army officer John Moore, who had left his homeland under a cloud. He received a 640-acre grant in 1830 which he called Avoca and he built a house on a ridge overlooking Avoca Lake, just to the west of the beach. He planted cereals, fruit and grapes. In 1836 he was charged with cattle theft but was acquitted. He journeyed to the goldfields in the 1850s and, while he was away, his house burned down.

Tom Davis leased the whole of Avoca in the late 19th century in order to exploit the timber. He transported the logs via tram to the mill at Terrigal. Tramway Rd in North Avoca follows part of the old route.

Avoca Beach from North Avoca
 

Avoca Beach
Avoca Beach is a lengthy, pleasant and popular beach enclosed at either end by rocky headlands. It is considered a major surfing beach though the surf at the northern end is considered to be for the more experienced. There is a surf lifesaving club. The beach is also ideal for fishing and its length makes it good for beach walking and exercise.

 

Avoca Lake
Just behind the beach is Avoca Lake, which is quite large and essentially in two sections, separated by the Avoca Drive bridge. A narrow arm extends south of the bridge while, on the northern side it spreads out to the west, the north and east to the beach. Bareena Island sits in the middle. North Avoca lies to the north and east of this northern section of the lake. On the eastern side of the bridge is J.F. Hazlett Park which is a pleasant spot for a picnic or barbecue.

Aquamuse Aquatic Hire at the lake have aqua bikes, pedal cats, canoes, sailboards and surf skis for hire. They are open weekends and school holidays from 10.00 a.m. - 5.00 p.m., September to April, contact (02) 4382 1936.

 

Copacabana Beach
Turn off Avoca Drive into Cape Three Points Rd and follow it south until it winds into Copacabana Drive. As it bends to the right turn left into Pampas St then left into Simone Place which runs along the length of Copacabana Beach, another popular surfing and holiday beach which is patrolled.

 

 

MacMaster's Beach
 

Captain Cook Lookout
Follow Simone Place north along the beachfront then take the road to the right (Del Monte Place) which leads up the steep headland known as First Point. A signposted side road leads to the carpark for the Captain Cook Lookout which lies at the end of a short path. A cairn bears a plaque which explains that, when offshore in 1770, Cook, looking south along the coastline, found it distinguished by three prominent headlands which he named, imaginatively, First Point, Second Point (Mourawaring Point at the southern end of MacMasters Beach) and Third Point (Bombi Point south of Little Beach). The three are readily discernible from the lookout which is one of the best on the coast. Not only are the views to the south excellent but it is possible to look north beyond Avoca Beach to the oddly shaped headland known as The Skillion at Terrigal.

 

 

Looking across Cockrane Lagoon towards Copacobana from MacMaster's Beach
 

Cockrone Lagoon and MacMasters Beach
Cockrone Lagoon lies just behind the beach. A pleasant family spot for a swim or paddle its eastern neck almost reaches to the beach and then expands westwards effectively dividing the hinterland in two. Thus while it is possible to walk all the way along the beach, to circumvent the lagoon and access the southern residential section it is necessary to return to the top of Copacabana Drive, turn left into Cullens Rd, follow it west for over 4 km into Kincumber and then turn into The Scenic Rd, heading south-east for 4 km. Hence the southern section has been given a separate title - MacMasters Beach .

2 km south-west of the Avoca Lake Bridge via Avoca Drive is a roundabout. If you turn right into The Scenic Highway then take the left into Picketts Valley Rd you will find Blue-Bead Arabian who offer trail riding in Picketts Valley, contact, (02) 4382 2346.
