"Bilgola - What can I say?"

Bilgola is bordered on the north by Avalon and Avalon Beach and to the south by Newport. To the east is the Pacific Ocean and to the west is Pittwater or more correctly the estuary of Broken Bay. In 2006 the population was just under 3,000 of which 27% were under 18 years old with 12% between the ages of 5 and 11 and 20% were over 60 years of age. 20% of the residents were born in the UK.

It is interesting that 27% of the population have a Bachelors or Higher Degree. As you would expect the majority of workers in the area are professional, management or clerical.

My most favoured memories of Bilgola are of scooting along Barrenjoey Road with the low scrub on either side. The beach views of Bilgola Beach are excellent. The beach is clean and kid safe with a preference for swimming in the salt pool to the south of the beach. Care must be taken if swimming on the northern end of the beach amongst the rocks as the waves are more broken there and there is an under tow.

I have fond memories of Bilgola beach and recommend it to families.
