Need a staple tee in your wardrobe? Hate buying a tee that is too clingy? Then we have the perfect tee for you. Our product of the week is the Avoca tee is a comfortable fit and comes in a range of colours from XS-XL.  So how can you wear our famous Avoca tee - with style of course.

The Avoca tee pictured here in our cream/indigo option works back really well with our Byron Pant.

The watermelon/indigo looks great with the lorne skirt in cream.

My personal favourite is the indigo/cream version as I do think it goes really well with denim.  But as shown below also looks good matched back with

the Byron pant

 

So where did the name Avoca come from? Well keeping in our theme of beach resorts this particular tee was named after Avoca Beach which is a major Central Coast holiday and surfing area. It's situated among a residential coastline of wooded hills, beaches and lakes.

Avoca Beach on the Central Coast features rocky headlands at each end of a long, golden beach. Popular as a holiday destination, especially for families, it has a vibrant surf culture and a relaxed and friendly ambience. There are lots of things to do, including fishing, beach walking, exploring the nearby parks and headlands, and simply relaxing in a quiet place.

The long stretch of beach is perfect for both novice and experienced surfers, and it's also ideal for recreational swimming.

Feeling adventurous? Why not take a surfing class at the Central Coast Surf School or dive down to the site of theEx-HMAS Adelaide, a former Australian warship that was deliberately sunk to create an artificial reef. 

Avoca Beach also features an ocean rock pool near the Surf Life Saving Club, perfect for young children.

Avoca Lake, situated behind the beach, is a peaceful recreational still-water retreat with pleasant walks and picnic areas. Does it not sound like the place you want to be?

 

History

The area was originally occupied by the Awabakel Aborigines. It was first inhabited by white settlers when Irish Army Officer John Moore received the first European land grant in 1830. The 640 acre lot was named Avoca. A house was built on the ridge overlooking Avoca Lake just to the west of the beach, and cereal, fruit and grape crops were planted.

The house was burned down in the 1850’s and the entire lot was leased in the late 19th century to exploit the timber.

Logs were transported to the mill at Terrigal by tram and Tramway Road in North Avoca is part of the old route.

The name Avoca is Celtic for "Great Estuary", or "Where the River meets the sea".

 

 

We hope you all have a fabulous weekend.
