Best of all, you’ll never be caught in a crowd and the beautiful natural attractions are all within easy reach.
Markets and shops
The Entrance Market is a produce market that’s a hub for the local community. It's held on Saturdays in the waterfront Memorial Park near where the pelicans gather to feed. The charming Wyee Markets are also in the northern Wyong area, held on the second Saturday of the month in the grounds of Wyee Community Hall.
The Avoca Beachside Markets, in pretty Avoca Beach, are held on the fourth Sunday of the month at Heazlett Park near sparkling Avoca Lake, a tranquil lagoon behind the gorgeous beach. You’ll find more than 100 stalls, local artists, delicious food and live music. There are art workshops for the kids, too.
Choose from nine shops selling clothes, jewellery, crafts and more at the Gnostic Corner co-operative in Woy Woy. Find beachy fashion at Montaze and Bohemian Traders in Erina, Shadow Bang and Plain Janes in Long Jetty, and La Boheme in Terrigal. For homewares, visit Drift, Blonde Onyx, Jachavela and Loughlin Furniture.
The Bouddi Gallery in Killcare, located near the beautiful Bouddi National Park, ensures indigenous artists and their communities directly benefit from all sales. From here, you can also visit ancient rock engravings in the surrounding wilderness and hear Dreaming stories with Bara Barang Aboriginal Tours.
