Woy Woy, Ettalong Beach and Umina Beach make

up the area known as the Peninsula – a unique

residential and holiday area in the south of the

region. It appears isolated from the rest of the region

due to the large expanse of Brisbane Water which

surrounds and separates it from other town centres,

however, this is regarded as its greatest asset.

Population of The Peninsula as at the 2011 Census

was 30,754.


Woy Woy is a retail and commercial centre servicing

the Peninsula. It is also the Peninsula’s public

transport hub with rail, bus and ferry services

converging to service the area.

larger number of visitors to the town.

Ettalong Beach is also serviced by a scheduled ferry

service to Palm Beach.
