    Views from The Skillion

    by colin_bramso Written Feb 15, 2012

    Terrigal's best-known landmark is The Skillion, a tall rocky outcrop jutting out into the ocean. It's a high point and there are great views into Terrigal, across the bay to Wamberal and Forresters beaches and, in the other direction, into Avoca beach.

    There's now a footpath with steps every so often to make the climb to the top easier and there's a lookout point established right at the top.

    Rock Pool At Terrigal Beach

    The Pool Is Overflowing, Freash Seawater
    4 more images

    At the southern end of the beach there is a very nice rock pool with its own small sandy beach. The pool is continually refreshed with seawater as the waves lap over during high tide and larger swells. It is a safe pool for children, however normal safety conditions are required when children are using the pool.

    An ideal place for adults and teenagers to enjoy the spray when waves break over the pool during rougher conditions.

    Watch The Pelicans Get Fed

    Feeding The Pelicans
    2 more images

    Take a 20 minute drive to Woy Woy and watch the Pelicans being fed at the jetty next to the Fishermans Co-Operative around 3:30 to 4:00pm each afternoon. It is a sight to see with 50 or so pelicans gathering for their daily handout. You will be amazed at how large some of these seabirds are. It is a great photo opportunity.

    The Fishermans Co-Op feed the pelicans the left overs from filleting fish etc.

    The Beach, A Late Spring Afternoon

    Beachfront, Very Early Morning
    2 more images

    We had an overnight stay on our way to Sydney and got down onto the beach just after5pm. I was amazed to see people in the surf thinking it would be too cold. I was informed that due to unusual weather conditions the ocean water temperature was 3 C warmer than normal and had been like that for several months. Perhaps this is linked to why Australia is experiencing its worst drought in 100 years.

    Early next morning I returned to the beach to enjoy the peace and calm, it was a delight.

    This is one activity which will get your kids smiling and should bring a smile to yourself. Well it made me smile and I have not been a kid for decades. I am certain you will find all sorts of wildlife around the lagoon, a nice place to take a relaxing walk.

    Terrigal Lagoon, Great For Families

    Terrigal Lagoon With Channel To Ocean

    The lagoon is next to the beach and is regularly refreshed with seawater during periods of high tides and rough seas. There is plenty of beach sand at the northern end of the lagoon which enables families to enjoy both the surf and the calm lagoon.

    Many years ago I spent much of my childhood around the beach and logoon and can recall prawning in the lagoon, however I doubt if any prawns remain these days.

    A Good Place To Fish

    Should you be in the town for several days I suggest you try beach fishing, you never know your luck and there is always someone casting a line.
