History

Etymology

Not to be confused with Togara, Queensland, Tuggerah was originally an Aboriginal word but its true meaning is not agreed upon by all sources. Some say that it originally meant 'cold' or 'cold place' and some say 'savannah grasslands'. Tuggerah was the name for the region, with The Entrance originally called "Tuggerah Entrance". "Tuggerah Beach" is located between North Entrance and Noraville. There was previously an electorate in the NSW Parliament called Tuggerah.
