Careel Bay: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Avalon Beach

Over the last decade or so Avalon has become the favoured "sea-change" destination for Sydney-siders looking to adopt the surfer lifestyle. As a result, the board-riding community here is large and enthusiastic but the skill level varies greatly so it's a good idea to watch for a bit before paddling into the fray.

North Avalon breaks along the north headland and a nearby sandbank and attracts lots of older longboarders who don't always succeed in getting out of each other's way. South Avalon is centred on a triangle-shaped sandbank near the 25 metre ocean rock pool (free entry) that generates a mix of fun easy waves.

The edge of the south cliff is known as Little Avalon, and here the swell sucks up hard on a shallow rock shelf to produce fast-barrelling tube rides.

The Beach Bible Garden

The Bible Garden is a quiet, contemplative, garden made up of a series of gently descending, intimate grassed terraces that lead down to a viewing area providing spectacular views. The pond contributes to its tranquility and provides a water habitat for biblical plants.

Located in the northern Sydney region, Gerald Hercules Robinson established the Bible Garden in the 1960s.

Newport Beach

Newport faces due east so is open to swell coming from any direction. A jumble of rocks 250 metres south of the north headland known as The Peak shapes two separate breaks that attract a highly skilled local surfing tribe.

Waves along the middle section of the beach are dependent on sandbanks and tend to close out without offering much for board-riders, but that leaves more room for swimmers and body-boarders. The south headland peters out into a part-submerged reef extending 450 metres out to sea, creating breaks in multiple directions which locals refer to as "crosswaves".

One of Newport's most distinctive features is a broad flat rock platform at the south end of the beach. The full-size saltwater lap pool atop the platform is an iconic feature of Sydney's northern beaches, having been a favourite subject of revered Australian photographer Max Dupain in the 1930s and 1950s.

Palm Beach Golf Course

The Palm Beach Golf Club enjoys an exquisite advantage of location, being only a fifty-minute drive from the commercial heartland of Sydney. The sprawling nine hole course is a championship level layout overlooking the picturesque Northern Beaches. The club is sheltered by the Barrenjoey Lighthouse, cradled between the Pittwater and Palm Beach. The clubhouse also provides a range of golfing equipments and accessories, like golf carts and clothes.

To the uninitiated this relatively flat course appears to be a bit of a 'doddle' at first, however as shown with past Pro-Ams very rarely under competition set up is the course par of 64 achieved. This 4,176 metre course has given many good golfers a basic lesson in course management, a fact that is further attested to with its revised layout record of 59.

Careel Bay: Events

Bard On The Beach - Avalon

In 2016, Bard On The Beach (BOTB) will be presenting William Shakespeare's powerful and thought provoking The Tragedy of Hamlet, at Dunbar Park, just off Avalon Beach.

They are proud of their Sydney summer experience: classical theatre as it was meant to be: raw, traditional, honest and entertaining, and all while you picnic under the stars as the waves roll nearby. There really is no other theatre company like this.

There are two new venues around Sydney in 2016, and an inaugural collaboration with Spectrum Now Festival in conjunction with The Sydney Morning Herald and ANZ.

The season begins at Balmoral Beach Band Rotunda, running Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. Then on to Dunbar Park, Avalon, in March, and to The Greek Theatre, Addison Road Community Centre, Marrickville, after that.

Please check the website for dates and times.
