What is open in the local area?
One of the great things about Terrigal is that many experiences are right on your door step. The beach is open and there are a number of great walking tracks through the area that can be utilised in a safe, socially distanced manner. Walking up The Skillion is one of the most memorable things to do in Terrigal.
Terrigal is known for its great village of speciality stores, restaurants and bars. Many of these are open and have adapted their way of doing business. As restrictions are reduced, we have seen some of our local tourism partners and Central Coast attractions such as the Australian Reptile Park reopening their doors.
