How to have a summer staycation in Avalon

POSTED BY John Ireland ON 18 Dec 2020


Relax and enjoy some personal time

When you’re on summer holiday, even if you’re staying close to home, you deserve some pampering. Avalon and Palm Beach have plenty of places where you can have a massage or Reiki treatment. Chakana Avalon offers some great spa treatments to help you relax and unwind during your summer staycation.

If you prefer a bit more activity, try a yoga class. You’ll get a great workout while quieting your mind and reducing stress. Health Space Yoga and Gwynne Jones Yoga both offer a variety of classes suitable for all skill levels, so don’t worry if it’s your first time on the mat.

Take a day trip

Venture beyond home without tackling The Bends by hopping on the ferry to head over to Ettalong for a picnic lunch. The beaches here tend to be less busy than in Avalon, so you’ll have no trouble finding a spot on the sand and the kids will love it. Not keen on a picnic? Book into one of the beachfront eateries.

Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park is another great excursion for the whole family, in particular if you have older children. Pitch a tent for the night and enjoy a swim at The Basin campground. In the morning, hike up to see the centuries old Aboriginal carvings before taking the ferry back to Palm Beach.

Love where you live

So often, locals forget to take the time to truly enjoy where they live. This is a tragedy – especially on the Peninsula! Instead of getting stuck in endless traffic, spend your summer relaxing at the beach or supporting the local shops. Be sure to try a meal or a coffee from a cafe or restaurant you haven’t visited before as well.

As a long term resident, there’s not much I don’t know about Avalon!
