Terrigal is known for the row of stately Norfolk Island pines that define the beachfront esplanade, situated at the southern end of a stunning 4 km beach. Its reputation as a top surfing spot combined with its beautiful location on Broken Head have made it a popular holiday spot since the late 1800s. Today the town is a blend of natural beauty, sophisticated dining, a lively cafe culture and plenty of good accommodation.
Terrigal offers an assortment of holiday activities that include fishing, swimming, surfing, boating, diving and scenic walks. An easy walk up the Skillion Lookout on Broken Head provides panoramic coastal views while an important dive site can be found 1.4km offshore from here where the Ex-HMAS Adelaide rests in 32m of pristine ocean.
