Summer Travellers - Welcome to the Northern Beaches.
We are something of a natural seaside resort, surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, dotted with national parks, and book-ended by the spectacular Sydney Harbour.
The Northern Beaches is largely made up of a long peninsula, governed by one Local Government, and is home to over 250,000 residents plus the millions of tourists that pass through each year. Before white settlement Aboriginal people of the Guringai language group inhabited the area.
Manly is often regarded as the heart of the Northern Beaches, as it is just 17 kilometres north-east from Sydney’s CBD or a short 20-minute ferry ride. It hosts a whole range of exciting restaurants and cafes, as well as stunning scenery, and is well worth the visit.
However, the best part of the Beaches is that each suburb and beach has something different to offer. The sheer volume of activities on offer can be overwhelming, but don’t worry - we have you COVERED. Whether you’re a born-and-bred local or a starry-eyed visitor, we’ve found something to keep you entertained this summer.
