Things to do

Tourist attractions near Terrigal holiday accommodation

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.


Things to do near holiday homes in Terrigal

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.

Day trips

Day trips from Terrigal holiday homes

Terrigal is the perfect base camp to explore the wonders of Gosford. Holiday rentals are just a short distance from places like the Australian Reptile Park, a popular zoo with many species of reptiles and mammals with hands-on experiences, and AquaSplash Inflatable Water Park, an adventure attraction with inflatable climbing obstacles, slides and trampolines. You could also visit Brisbane Water, a barrier estuary with fishing and parks teeming with wildlife, and Bouddi National Park, a large park with rainforest and marine habitats.


Climate for your stay in Terrigal holiday homes

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.
