Toukley and Lake Haven

surfing in Toukley NSW
Toukley is an expanding residential and holiday resort area of the Central Coast. The name is of indigenous origin but the original meaning is now uncertain. Two very different theories are that 'toukley' means 'many brambles', or that 'toukley ouckley' means 'rough on one side, smooth on the other', interpreted as referring to Tuggerah Lake and Budgewoi Lake. The last Aborigine to frequent Tuggerah Lake on his bark canoe was Billy Fawkner who died in 1875. He was known as 'the last of the Brisbane Water blackfellows', the remainder of his tribe killed by disease and dispossessed of their land by force.

Terrigal Beach
The name Terrigal is said to mean “uncertain”. Possibly "a place of, or where one can find wild figs" (if based on the Aboriginal word "Tarriga"), or "a place of little birds" (if based on the Aboriginal word "Tarragal"). Many different spellings of Terrigal appear on maps over the years. Most popular activities along the Terrigal stretch of coast are surfing, swimming, boating, waterskiing and fishing. Anglers regularly find flathead, snapper, and jewfish offshore, and flathead, blackfish and bream in the surf.
