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.

Curl Curl Beach


Curl Curl Beach is located between Dee Why Beach and Freshwater Beach on the Northern Beaches.

Curl Curl is one of Sydney's best surfing beaches. It faces the east-southeast and averages 1.6 metre waves. The beach is approximately 1.2 km long and is divided into North Curl Curl and South Curl Curl.

The northern part of the beach has a lagoon, which flows to the sea. North Curl Curl has good swimming and body boarding conditions, particularly in front of and south of the lagoon. Best in north easterly winds.This area is great for kids, as they can walk through shallow water, build sandcastles or search for sea creatures.

The beautiful south end of Curl Curl is popular, with a child-friendly ocean swimming pool and cafe. If you are planning to swim at the beach, make sure you stay between the flags, as there are several rips at any one time, the most notable one being the Garbage Bowl at the southern end of the beach.

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.

Collaroy Beach


Collaroy has great swimming conditions and is excellent for beginner surfers.

Collaroy Beach has a fully accessible beach reserve and playground complete with disabled toilets, accessible picnic areas, rockpool and paths. For those in a wheelchair, it has a freewheeler wheelchair that can go in the water, and a liberty swing.

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.
