About this listing

Avoca Beach Shack is your perfect getaway home. From the balcony, you can enjoy the beautiful waterviews and enjoy that afternoon wine and cheese or your morning coffee. Avoca Beach Shack is just a short walk approx 100 m (street level) to Avoca Village shops and cafes and a short 400m walk to the Avoca Surf Club. Across the road is the path to the beach and you are also just a short walk to the famous Avoca Theatre.  Avoca Beach Shack is the quintessential beach feel holiday home.

Avoca Beach forms part of the predominantly surfing and holiday resort area stretching along residential coastline from The Entrance down to Macmasters Beach. Situated in a quiet no through road area, it’s wooded hills and white-sandy beaches are a popular destination for Sydney’s wealthy and more discerning holidaymakers. The emphasis on Avoca Beach and surrounding areas is on relaxation and beach or surf activities. Avoca Beach stretches between two dominating rocky headlands. While the surf varies from one end to the other to suit the novice or more experienced surfer, it is also ideal for fishing and recreational swimming for all ages. Avoca Beach also features an ocean rock pool near the Surf Life Saving Club, perfect for young children.

Avoca Lake, situated behind the beach, is a peaceful recreational still-water retreat with pleasant walks and picnic areas. Beachside Markets at Avoca are generally held on the 4th Sunday of each month from 9 am – 2 pm. Copacabana Beach just a few kilometers south of Avoca is another popular patrolled surfing and holiday beach.

Captain Cook Lookout is one of the best on the coast with excellent views south, and north beyond Avoca Beach. It can be accessed by following the beachfront road up to the steep headland known as First Point. This area was first documented by Captain Cook in 1770 when he found the coastline from off-shore was distinguished by three prominent headlands. He imaginatively named them First Point, Second Point (Mourawaring Point at the Southern end of Macmasters Beach), and Third Point (Bombi Point south of Little Beach).

Avoca Art Gallery is situated along Avoca Drive on the way to Kincumber.

The Avoca Beach Surf Life Saving Club is one of the most predominant and active in the region. It was formed in 1929 after a tragic double drowning at Avoca Beach. The original Clubhouse was built by voluntary labor at a cost of 115 pounds. It has been extended several times since, and now relocated to its present position. The club held its first surf carnival on New Year’s Day, 1930, becoming an annual event for the next 50 years.  In addition to surfing events, woodchopping and horse races were also held.

The area was originally occupied by the Awabakel Aborigines. It was first inhabited by white settlers when Irish Army Officer John Moore received the first European land grant in 1830. The 640 acre lot was named Avoca. A house was built on the ridge overlooking Avoca Lake just to the west of the beach, and cereal, fruit and grape crops were planted.

The house was burned down in the 1850’s and the entire lot was leased in the late 19th century to exploit the timber. Logs were transported to the mill at Terrigal by tram and Tramway Road in North Avoca is part of the old route. The name Avoca is Celtic for “Great Estuary”, or “Where the River meets the sea”.

  • Everything fantastic! Beautiful place, fantastic location! We’ll definitely come back. Thanks Kim! Five Stars!

  • We had a terrific stay at Kim’s place in Avoca. It is our second time back now and we will be coming again. Kim is very helpful and friendly and left us a present when we checked in. The place is clean and well presented.

  • Went for a weekend away to Avoca Beach Shack with friends and it was the perfect place as it is right on the beach! Such a cosy and clean home with the best views. Would recommend staying here. Kim was fantastic!
