Avoca Beach, NSW, Australia


Avoca is located on NSW Central Coast. Avoca Beach is a lengthy, pleasant and popular beach enclosed at either end by scenic rocky headlands.

It is without a doubt a major surfing beach. If you intend to surf at the northern end make sure you have the right skills as it is considered to be for the more experienced. Avoca has a well known surf lifesaving club.

The beach and the rocky headlands are ideal for fishing and their length make it good for beach walking and exercise.

Mick, the punker


This young punker with the impressive hair style is Mick. He tells me it is quite difficult to be a punker because of people’s perceptions.

Even more impressive than his hairstyle was his clever comment on lack of cultural life for young people on NSW Central Coast. “There is no culture here, other than beach culture, and that is not much”.

I think I have to agree with him. Most small regional towns offer very little for young people. Even simple things like music concerts are limited to capital cities.

Mick, thanks for the pose and quick chat! You have to work on your ice skating technique 😉
