    Reasonable sand, a lot of shady grass, water's ok but mostly for kids as it's still shallow when it turns to boat parking. A great sunset beach - not many in Sydney. There are even footpaths in the area (rare on the peninsula) so it's easy to walk to.

    It’s a beautiful bushwalk with amazing views to the city and the Central Coast. Wildflowers, bird life and a great spot to watch the Whale migration.

    A quick swim can cost over $100 in parking fines, and there is never anywhere legal to park. The Northern Beaches COuncil does not provide any Waste recepticals, and there is frequently rubbish scattered around. The biggest downfall for this beach is the residents around the beach are pretty cranky, and not shy about calling on tourists to do one thing or another. They would prefer Paradise Beach be a private beach.

    The best place to go if you just want to chill for an hour or so; sit and relax, stretch and breathe, listen to the calming music and look at the extraordinary view. An hour of pure peace.

    Absolutely fantastic. It was a brilliant trip with so many photo opportunities. Valerie was so generous with her time and photographic knowledge, spending time with one on ones, group talks and giving ideas to try. Valerie also organised photography sessions in beautiful places, sunsets and sunrises, walks up to lighthouses, walking around the ruins and a gorgeous model posing on yacht with amazing blue/turquoise water backgrounds . I learnt so much about exposure and composition during my time away. Came home buzzing with ideas to try and wanting to join her next expedition. I thoroughly recommend photography trips with Valerie.

    Beachside bookshop provides excellent service especially useful for grandparents. The helpful staff is so knowledgeable about books for childen that I always come out with excellent gifts for my grandchildren. Always my first choice for books in Avalon.

    Fantastic.

    Really fantastic choice of beers and wines. Along with gins, etc...

    Good quality and unusual ranges, that are hard to source elsewhere.

    Good price range from $20 upwards to several hundred dollars.

    Often has tasting available.

    Owner very knowledgeable. Really knows the wine and can recommend any of them.

    But owner also a bit of a name dropper! And an up-seller. So beware! :)

    Several times I have been in for ONE bottle of wine with the intention of ONLY spending $30.00.

    Only to find myself leaving with crackers, cheese, chocolate, candles and an empty purse. Last time I somehow spent $150.00.

    :)

    This is an original suburban cinema once owned by the Spry family, locals from Avalon. It has been renovated and there are 2 or 3 smaller cinemas there now. Good for a rainy Sunday afternoon.

    We booked a group of aroud a dozen 10 years olds for a birthday event and the experience proved to be brilliant from start to finish. Tony guided our young, inexperienced group around Clareville beach with great confidence and real professionalism. All of the boys had a wonderful time and I can't recommend his service enough. Thank you Tony.
