With an 18km coastline stretching from Manly to Palm Beach, the Northern beaches offer a range of recreational activities in a variety of natural environments – there are over 25 sandy beaches to choose from (many of which are nestled between headlands). Many of the beachces are patrolled, and most have superb surf conditions.
In contrast, the temperate coastal bushland and calm beaches of Pittwater and the surrounding national parks provide a relaxed ambience that is ideal for a family holiday or a romantic getaway.
Sydney’s Northern Beaches are great for surfing, boasting a unique laid back lifestyle coupled with world-class dining. Visit the expansive stretch of Palm Beach, Newport with its surf culture, Avalon’s boutiques and the unique rock pools and golden sands that dot the coast from Palm Beach to Dee Why. Sydney’s Northern Beaches, nicknamed “God’s Country” by the locals are among the best in the world.
Palm Beach is Sydney’s furthest point North and is rich in cultural and historical significance. The land of the Garrigal Aborigines has a natural charm with a laid back atmosphere enjoyed by overseas tourists, day trippers and affluent residents.
Palm Beach and Barrenjoey Headland have become a popular destination for many tourists seeking a sneek peek at the popular home of Summer Bay – the famous ‘Home & Away’ soap opera – which is filmed there.
