Norah Head

Norah Head, Central Coast

Norah Head has the quality of a rather sleepy Cinderella.
It has a beautiful lighthouse, a pleasant rock pool and a cliff-top walk offering panoramic views across the Pacific, all of which are located on the Central Coast Highway north of Tuggerah Lake and east of Lake Munmorah and Budgewoi Lake. It is a sleepy town that is famous for its lighthouse and national parks.

The lakes are a magnet for people. The water, on average, is less than 2 m deep and shark-free, making it suitable for water skiing, canoeing, sailing, rowing, and sailboarding. Anglers can also catch blackfish, mullet, snapper, bream, flounder, tailor, flathead, jewfish, tarwhine, and whiting on Norah Head’s beautiful parklands or Munmorah State Conservation Area. On the west side, Norah Head has Wyrrabalong National Park, a beautiful parkland that is also a wonderful place for recreation.


Norah Head Lighthouse

Norah Head lighthouse is one of the last classical style lighthouses in NSW and began operating in 1903. It is still operational today. The walk up 96 stairs is well worth the effort with stunning 360 degree views on offer.
