Shuttle transport (Avalon > Newport)

The pick-up point is at Avalon on Barrenjoey Rd in front of the surf club (Map) and the drop-off is at Newport on Barrenjoey Rd at the northern end of the beach car park (Map). Departure times are on the half-hour from 10am through to 1pm. Normal parking restrictions apply.

Bag drop

Avalon SLSC will transport your gear from the start at Newport back to Avalon SLSC, where you can pick it up after your swim. You can also store your gear free of charge at the clubhouse at Avalon Beach.
