My avocado tree is getting very tall but not getting any outward growth. It is still in a pot and approx 2 metres high. Should I nip the top off (new growth) to promote outward growth? Should I plant it out in the garden? Will it grow too big for a backyard?

You can top it. That will be fine. It is important to note that avocados will need a warm environment to survive. They will also need a second tree as male and female flowers grow on separate trees. You will need to know the sex of your tree to know which other tree you will need to get.
