Dee Why

The beautiful, crescent-shaped beach at Dee Why - one of Sydney's famous northern beaches, about 20km from the CBD - is backed by a lagoon. This lake, although still a wildlife and bird refuge, is a shadow of its former self when it teemed with our feathered friends.

In 1963, the black swans which frequented the lagoon, and remain the symbol of the suburb, simply took off, never to return in any numbers, due no doubt to the death of the seagrasses on which they dined, another casualty of encroaching humanity on this once pristine environment.

The Dee Why beach is part of a chain of nine beaches and 185ha of sand, foreshore dunes and bluffs administered by the Warringah Shire Council, which also holds stewardship over 5900ha of bushland and reserves.

As well as being an integral part of the peninsula way of life, the northern beaches have a rich surf life-saving and board riding history which began when the legendary Hawaiian Duke Kahanamoku rode the Freshwater waves in 1915.

Dee Why: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Dee Why Beach


Dee Why plays host to many of the northern beaches main events including Australia Day and New Years Eve fireworks.

It also is the site of numerous first class sporting events such as the Beachley Classic, Sun Run, Ocean Thunder and many more.

The adjoining Ted Jackson Reserve has a fenced children's playground and a funky outdoor table tennis table. The area also boasts free WiFi.

Dee Why Beach faces slightly south east but its southern headland both gives protection from southerly winds and shape to any swell coming from the south. The point break here is a beauty, and local surfers converge on it in numbers when it's working.

Dee Why itself is a key hub of residential and commercial activity along Sydney's northern peninsula and thus offers a variety of accommodation, dining, shopping and nightlife.

Long Reef Beach


Long Reef is a perfect stretch of white sand.

At the north end there is Long Reef Headland, a protected aquatic reserve, and a golf course. A walk to the top of the headland can often be rewarded by views of migrating whales.

There are offshore reefs in the north (the Long Reef Bomboras) and beach breaks running the entire 1.6 kilometres south to Dee Why and, on weekdays there's every chance of getting a quality wave to yourself.

The Long Reef Bomboras starts to break at one metre or so and in a big south swell can produce a beautiful wave up to five metres. Reliable sandbanks shape beach breaks that are great for beginners and intermediate surfers.

North Long Reef is also a favourite for windsurfing and kitesurfing.

Freshwater Beach


A stunning family beach wedged between two headlands, Freshwater is a short walk north from Manly. A coastal walk further north will take you to Curl Curl.

The north headland provides excellent protection from the summer nor'easter, and waves are fairly consistent right along the beach thanks to reliable sandbanks.

An eight lane, 50 metre saltwater pool at the north end is a favourite with lap swimmers.

Freshwater's unique claim to fame is that this is where surfboard riding was popularised in Australia by Hawaiian 'Duke' Kahanamoku. Duke famously carved a board from a piece of local timber and demonstrated surfing for an enthralled crowd on 15 January 1915. A life-size statue of Duke Kahanamoku on the northern headland commemorates the historic day.

Freshwater is part of the Manly-Freshwater National and World Surfing Reserve that recognises the historical, cultural, and environmental values of famous surfing beaches.

Fluidity - Art Exhibition


New exhibition explores the ancient connection with nature.

Fluidity is body of work by acclaimed artists Catriona Pollard and Karen Visser which applies a fluid perspective to nature and explores form and texture in two very different ways: sculpture using foraged natural materials and photography that paints nature with light.

Both artists believe that often people only see what they want to see: visions that match their fixed beliefs and perspectives and anything that is defined in a limited way is open to transformation. Objects and views are fluid, whether this is discarded branches and vines or spectacular coastline seen through new light.

Fibre artist, Catriona Pollard uses foraged or discarded organic material to weave sculptures that honour and worship the earth beneath the feet and the new growth that can emerge from it.

Photographer, Karen Visser applies a unique perspective of the Northern Beaches coastline through photographic impressionism where she explores the ethereal atmospheric sensitivity within natural environs.
