Avoca Lake

Natural Attractions

Nestled between the coastal settlements of North Avoca and Avoca Beach, Avoca Lake is an intermittently closed estuarial lagoon, catering to a variety of recreational activities. Located in the Central Coast region of NSW, Avoca is only a 1.5 hour trip from Sydney, making it the idyllic day trip from the city.

There is a large island in the middle and many bays to explore the coastal wetlands and a fisherman’s paradise, with catches including bream, whiting, flathead, estuarial perch and the elusive mangrove jack. The waters are perfectly safe for a relaxing swim, canoe or kayak, with companies like Aquafun on Avoca Lake offering fun adventure activities to try on the waterway playground.

You can also hire pedal boats and stand up paddle boards which make for great fun for all the family. Relax under the hanging fig trees at the picnic area and enjoy a barbecue lunch.

Avoca Lake is ideally located close to the beach and shops in the centre of town. The area encompasses some of the NSW’s most exquisite surf beaches, woodlands, lagoons and lakes.
