Exploring

Avalon Horizons is located on the beautiful Northern Beaches of Sydney (about an hour by express bus from the CBD during peak times) Enjoy sunrises over beautiful Avalon Beach — and  have the excitement of Sydney just a short drive, bus or ferry ride away.

Aside from having one of the world’s best climates year round, Sydney’s Northern Beaches has a relaxed, casual and resort-like feel. The area is blessed with beautiful beaches, each with their own sensational rock pool providing ample  swimming, snorkeling, surfing and boating opportunities. There is also an abundance of great cafes and fine dining restaurants within an easy 5 minute drive, as well as a local cinema and unique shops for those craving some retail therapy.

On our western shores lies Pittwater — a lushly vegetated area adjacent to and part of Kuringai National Park. Kuringai features great bush walks and outlooks and is considered to be one of Australia’s most beautiful areas.

For those of you just wishing to “veg out” — our beautiful solar-heated pool and oversized deck featuring spectacular ocean views and sea breezes mean you never have to leave. Just grab a good book and enjoy the sunshine — even in winter. Order your dinner from any one of dozens of take-away restaurants, whose menus we provide and who will deliver right to your door.
