Sun, sand, and surfer vibes in Avalon Beach

Dreaming of a sea change? With its laid-back lifestyle and vibrant board-riding community, Avalon Beach is a magnet for Sydneysiders who want to slow down the pace.

Soak up the beach scene in Avalon Beach

If you're a seasoned surfer, head to the fast breaks and barrels along the north headland. For beginners, the triangle-shaped sandbank near South Avalon serves up fun waves that are perfect for learning. The calm waters make it a favorite with families, picnickers, and sunbathers. Kayaking along the estuary is a great way to get your feet wet, stopping by scenic towns like Clareville and Elvina Bay along the way. Pittwater is all about barefoot luxury, so why not embrace the lifestyle, with stunning Avalon Beach vacation rentals complete with floor-to-ceiling glass windows, polished timber floors, and beach chic d_cor?

Make a splash in the Avalon Rock Pool

Spanning over 80 feet, the Avalon Rock Pool is a scenic spot for a morning splash or sunset selfie. It even features a wading pool, which makes it eternally popular with families. With sweeping ocean views, the 18-hole Avalon Golf Course is a fantastic place to wind up a day in the sunshine. Nearby Barrenjoey Lighthouse is another highlight, standing tall since 1881. You can either stroll the half-mile path to the peninsula, or work up a sweat on the more challenging Smugglers Track.

Winter bliss on Sydney's northern peninsula

Sydney's northern peninsula is at its best in the summer when the beaches are drenched in sunshine. Whether you want to top up your tan on the beach, hike in Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park or simply relax by the pool, summer in the Pittwater region is absolute bliss. That said, it's not the only time to visit. Even on a rainy day, the region's natural beauty still shines bright. If you want to escape the crowds, enjoy windswept walks on the beach, and savor a glass of wine by the fireplace, winter is a fantastic time to enjoy an Avalon Beach vacation.

Discover Australia's Aboriginal heritage

Just 25 miles from the Sydney central business district, Pittwater is a sanctuary of salt, sand, and sunshine. The views are spectacular, so why not live it up in multimillion-dollar Avalon Beach vacation rentals? Perched on the edge of the Hawkesbury River, the sprawling Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park is one of Australia's oldest nature reserves. From bushland walking trails to ancient Aboriginal rock paintings, Ku-ring-gai Chase is an enchanting introduction to wild Australia. You can see more Aboriginal ochre paintings along the family-friendly Red Hands Cave Walking Track, or even spend a few nights camping under the stars.
