Northern Beaches Region Highlights & Essential Things To Do
Discover Your Local Northern Beaches Area
There's nothing quite like those lazy summer nights when on holidays. The sun never sets, you wear virtually nothing and the day's heat wafts off the tarmac as you saunter barefoot to the shop. If only every night was like a night in the Northern Beaches with all its attractions, things to do and places to go.
Living in Sydney's Northern Beaches has been described as like always being on holidays, and with the city's events only an hour away, it's hard to argue. Stretching from Manly all the way up to Palm Beach, the Northern Beaches remain relatively unrumpled, being that little bit too far for all the tourists to get their socks and sandals on. Accessible only by car and bus, the Northern Beaches' simultaneous seclusion and proximity christen it Sydney's unspoiled paradise within an arm's reach of the city.
Stroll beneath the Norfolk pines lining Manly Beach and make your way down the promenade before grabbing a drink at a beach-facing bar. Narrabeen's golden crescent-shaped shore makes conditions perfect for all water-sports, stretching far enough to accommodate windsurfing, sailing, kayaking, fishing and boating all at once. Navigate the caves at North Curl Curl, the eroded rock-turn-fifty metre pool at South Curl Curl or head to Newport Beach and dip your hand into the silky depths of the marine rock pool. Shop at Warringah's quasi-outdoor megamall for anything and everything or swap the shopping centre for the surfy boutiques at Avalon Beach Village. Don't forget to take a peek at beachside affluence at the beaches' northernmost point, Palm Beach. Architectural spectacles frame sweeping views made famous by the Australian soap opera 'Home and Away' which films on these sands.
The Northern Beaches proves that holidays really can last forever. Visit or simply stay in summer indefinitely for a taste of what's on.
