The Avoca Lake is fed by stormwater runoff into Salwater Creek that gathers on the slopes within Kincumber Mountain Reserve to the northwest above Pickets Valley. The lake has a surface area of approximately 70 hectares (170 acres) and a catchment area of 10.8 square kilometres (4.2 sq mi). Its outflow is into Bulbararing Bay in the Tasman Sea of the South Pacific Ocean. The outflow is generally closed, and water levels inside the lake are not usually influenced by ocean tides.
Bareena Island lies entirely within Avoca Lake.

This page discusses the rivers and hydrography of the state of New South Wales, Australia.
The principal topographic feature of New South Wales is the series of low highlands and plateaus called the Great Dividing Range, which extend from north to south roughly parallel to the coast of the Coral and Tasman seas of the South Pacific Ocean.
The two main categories of rivers in New South Wales, are those that rise in the Great Dividing Range and flow eastwards to the sea, the Coastal NSW Rivers; and those that rise on the other side of the crest of the range and flow westward, the Inland NSW Rivers. Most of the inland rivers eventually combine into the Murray-Darling network of rivers, which drains to the sea in South Australia.Terrigal Lagoon
