History At A Glance

Did you know that the very first land grant made in the area now known as The Entrance was in 1828 to Henry Holden?

This piece of land stretched from the Tuggerah Lake to where Toowoon Bay Road is located. Henry named this area "Toowoon" which is the Aboriginal meaning for the mating call of the Wonga pigeon.

In 1854 this land was purchased by the Taylor family, who renamed it "Tuggerah Beach".

The word Tuggerah is Aboriginal for "bleak and cold" which is a reflection of the winter months. However come the warmer months of spring and summer, families flock to the foreshore for sunshine, swimming and summertime fun.
