Terrigal has long been a drawcard for Sydney siders wanting a luxury escape to the beach without a lengthy road trip. The pristine beaches, spectacular views, and thriving café and restaurant culture make it a stunning holiday destination; and a growing numbers of people are making it permanent by swapping the weekends away in a high-end rental for a luxury property of their very own.
We are seeing this reflected in record-breaking property sales, like the intuitively designed Se on Terrigal penthouse at 38 Campbell Crescent, which sold off-the-plan for $3.2 million – and it evidently has people sitting up and taking notice.
So why is Terrigal so popular? It wasn’t hard to find the reasons…
The natural beauty of the beaches, lagoon and Wamberal Lagoon Nature Reserve offer an array of outdoor activities. Locals spend much of their time boating, water skiing, fishing and swimming on the beautiful coastline that stretches out for four kilometres of stunning white sand and sparkling water. There are equally enjoyable options onshore, with a wealth of walking paths along the Esplanade under the beautiful Norfolk Pines, up to Skillion Lookout to enjoy the panoramic views or along the walkway towards Broken Head. Alternatively, head off for a round of golf at the Breakers Country Club or Shelley Beach Golf Club.
Restaurants and Cafes
Terrigal has embraced the paddock to plate movement with a wealth of fresh, locally sourced seasonal produce being served up all around town. The Belly Fish café has a focus on Central Coast and Sydney producers, with an ever-changing menu to suit the season and premium coffee from Sydney roasters Single O. Award-winning seafood restaurant The Cowrie is also well-renowned for a seafood feast, as is Pocket Bar for bespoke cocktails by the water.
The local passion for food has seen the creation of the Greedy Guts Street Food Markets, a boutique street food market held on the second Friday of each month at the Florida Beach Bar. Each month features new vendors, making for a unique night of tasty treats and live entertainment.
The streets along the waterfront and within Terrigal town centre are dotted with charming seaside boutiques, offering local Australian and international fashion labels. Local store HER Empire was established by former Sydney Stylist and Social Media Manager Aly, who saw an opportunity to combine beachside lifestyle with a love of beautiful and unique clothing.
Business Growth Corridor
The Central Coast has been identified as a growth corridor, with growing numbers of businesses and organisations choosing it as a base. Its proximity to both Sydney and Newcastle, easy access to infrastructure, and affordable office space make it an attractive option. This growth has seen the creation of co-working spaces in Erina, Umina, Gosford and Wyong as small businesses and start-ups take advantage of the lower costs and coastal lifestyle.
The stunning natural surrounds combine with ease of accessibility and a relaxed holiday feel, making it simple to see why so many Sydney-siders are taking advantage of value delivered by a high-end home in the area.
