Norah Head

The Norah Head coastline between Hargraves Beach in the north and Pelican Point in the south is the first stretch of seashore on the Central Coast to attain National Surfing Reserve status. This small and unique strip of coastline features unspoiled world-class surfing options in all wave and wind conditions including at least nine beach breaks, two point breaks, three bomboras and two reef breaks.

Dedication of a surfing site as a National Surfing Reserve is a community and government recognition of the contribution surfing makes to the Australian lifestyle and the significance that surfing sites have made to the development of surfing in Australia.

National Surfing Reserves are iconic places of intrinsic environmental, heritage, sporting and cultural value to a nation. They embrace all people to enjoy, understand and protect unique coastal environments of universal value to the surfing world. A National Surfing Reserve encourages stewardship and creates another community voice to unite and protect sensitive surfing resources.
