Long Reef: Where To Go / Sightseeing

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.

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.
