Killcare is a south-eastern suburb of the Central Coast region of New South Wales, Australia, located on the Bouddi Peninsula. It is part of the local government area.Prior to the arrival of European Settlement, Aboriginals from the coastal Guringai (Ku-ring-gai) tribe lived in and around Hardys Bay area. Evidence is to be found today in rock carvings and middens found in numerous locations around the area. After British settlement the area was established as a fishing and farming community. The name probably originated later as it was subdivided early last century as "killing one's cares".The Killcare area encompasses both the beach and bay side of the Bouddi Peninsula and is flanked by the Bouddi National Park. Killcare retains a small fishing village atmosphere centred on the Killcare Store. The village has an unusually broad variety of shops including yacht charters, art gallery, hairdresser, fashion boutique, restaurant and cafes and real estate agents. Killcare Marina has permanent moorings.The area has a strong community with many associations including the new Pretty Beach Community Pre-School and Pretty Beach Public School at neighbouring Pretty Beach.

The RSL hosts a series of local clubs including the Hardys Bay Hackers Golf Club and the Fridget Digits winter swimmers.Killcare is also home to the Killcare Rural Fire Service. The volunteer brigade services the surrounding suburbs and the Bouddi National Park, conducting controlled hazard reduction burning and a wide variety of other safety and hazard prevention activities.Killcare is in New South Wales.
