Our Community

Norah Head is a small coastal village situated at the Northern End of the Central Coast of New South Wales.

Our population is approximately 600 comprising a wide demographic of age groups from young families to retirees.

We are bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the east, Toukley to the west, Budgewoi to the North and The Entrance to the South and surrounded by native bushland.

The major attractions to visit Norah Head are the excellent surfing beaches, especially Soldiers Beach, and the historic Norah Head Lighthouse. We also boast a very popular boat ramp into Cabbage Tree Harbour where you can launch your boat directly into the ocean via a safe harbour.

The local community is active in preserving the natural bushland with a CoastCare group which meets twice per week.

The Lighthouse is NSW-Heritage listed and is managed by a community-based volunteer Trust with full-time on-site Caretakers. The site boasts 3 fully renovated cottages, 2 of which may be booked for short-term holiday accommodation.
