You'll have a terribly regal vacation in Terrigal

Terrigal vacation rentals have got some serious pedigree, since holidaymakers-in-the-know have been flocking to this gorgeous spot on the Tasman Sea for more than a century. It's evolved into a rather chic little spot, but despite its handsome properties and fine eateries, it's the sort of place that never feels overdeveloped. With its long beach and reliable surf, plus plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities like wildlife-watching, hiking, fishing and diving, Terrigal's a 1-stop shop for vacation perfection, and you'll find it difficult to believe that you're just an hour and a half's drive from the centre of Sydney.

Things to do

Take a stroll along the coast to Wyrrabalong

Part and parcel of Terrigal vacation rentals is taking in some coastal exploration, whether that involves a stroll out onto the "Skillion" – Terrigal's famous promontory – or a more serious excursion into nearby Wyrrabalong National Park. And if you're the sort of person who can have too much natural beauty, then how about taking in some of the man-made variety, in the form of the Gosford Classic Car Museum? A 20-minute drive from Terrigal, it's got more than 450 gleaming cars and motorcycles, and you could combine it with a visit to the Henry Kendall Cottage and Museum just down the road.


Plenty of fish in the sea, as the saying goes

Terrigal vacation rentals are perfect for anyone who loves the life aquatic. Long-haired surfers do their thing off the town's gorgeous 4-km beach, and with some great local surf schools, it's the ideal spot to take your first steps on a board. And if you're more about what's under the water, then you're in for a treat. Divers can get up close with Nemo and all his mates, while fishermen can hoik them out of the water on the end of a line. There's plenty of hiking and biking around too, not to mention the brilliant wildlife and whale-watching opportunities.


Life's a breeze out on the New South Wales coast

When it comes to climate, this patch of New South Wales can see some fairly high summer temperatures, though at least the coastal location means you've often got a sea breeze to take the edge off. All the same, you'll want to slap on plenty of sunscreen and take some long lunches in the shade when the sun's at its hottest. Winters are on the cooler side, and the shoulder seasons can be great times to visit too. And if you're coming to Terrigal with whales on your mind, then you'll be wanting to turn up in migration season, between May and November.

Natural highlights

Unleash your inner Ahab (but leave the harpoons at home)

With 4 km of sandy beach, you won't need to use your elbows at Terrigal. Set on the Tasman Sea, one of Terrigal's distinctive features is the "Skillion" – a famous promontory that gives you awesome views back towards town. Terrigal's got 2 lagoons, and wildlife enthusiasts will want to bring the binoculars, since not only is Wamberal Lagoon a great spot for birdwatching, but this part of the New South Wales coast is prime whale-watching territory. Just up the coast is Wyrrabalong National Park, home to some of the last coastal rainforest in New South Wales.
