Heading north from Sydney take the F3 which starts at the Pacific Highway from Wahroonga. Take the Gosford exit which is around 60km from the start of the F3.
Down the hill and then about 10km after the F3 exit turn right at the football stadium just over the railway line. Keep an eye out for signs to Erina, or Terrigal. Don't take the turnoff to Avoca.
About 8k from Gosford go through Erina and turn right at the roundabout with roadworks and head towards Terrigal and North Avoca. Take Terrigal Drive about 2-3 km and turn right at the ambulance station to Charles Kay drive.
At the top of the hill turn left into the Scenic Highway. About 2 km then turn right at Tramway Rd. Down the hill you will see Avoca Beach.
