Terrigal: How to get there

From the café, Terrigal is a twenty minutes drive along the Pacific Highway. There are plenty of signs which direct you were to turn so it is an easy drive. The traffic was heavy near Erina so worth trying to go early if driving. Those travelling by public transport can catch a bus from either Woy Woy or Gosford train station to Terrigal which takes around the same time to arrive. The train ride from Sydney is 1.5 hours however is quite scenic and worth a day trip or weekend away. Winding down the road into Terrigal itself, I was arrested by the clear blue waters and shopfronts along the shore. Since it was a weekend, the shops were bustling and the cafes full of early risers, surfers and those just wanting to relax. There is a definite relaxed atmosphere with people on the footpath nodding and saying hello to one another and a crisp ocean air drifting across to the cafés lining the shore. Amongst the cafes and their assortment of music and ocean breeze, a surf carnival was beginning and pop-up shops starting to emerge on the beach with local artists displaying their work. By lunch-time hordes of families had arrived and were navigating the little shops and watching the surfing competition.
