Originally inhabited by the Guringai people and Garigal clan, the area now known as Avalon Beach was called Priest’s Flat; the name shifted to Avalon Beach in the 1920s, inspired by the mythical Avalon isle from Celtic legend. Following this, a series of housing subdivisions evolved through the early 1900s before the iconic Avalon Surf Life Saving Club formed in 1925.
Despite its secluded village vibes, Avalon Beach stays connected through buses linking to Newport, Mona Vale, and the B-Line express to Sydney CBD. Scenic coastal drives like Barrenjoey Road lead north to Careel Bay and Palm Beach, where water access provides boating and ferries around Pittwater, reaching the Central Coast.
Surfers flock to Avalon Beach’s famed breaks, while boaters explore Paradise Beach and hidden Pittwater coves like Careel Bay Marina.
