What's it like living on the Northern Beaches?

The Northern Beaches area is comprised of the northern coastal suburbs of Sydney, including Dee Why, Manly, Avalon, Freshwater, Forestville, Cromer and Brookvale. The area covers 254 square kilometres and provides a sunny seaside residence to over 250,000 people - making it the third most populated area in Sydney.

The original inhabitants of the land region were the Kuringgai people of the Eora nation. The Northern Beaches were explored early on in the settlement of Sydney, just a few weeks after the First Fleet. However, it remained a rural area for much of their history, with small townships slowly developing between headlands.

The Northern Beaches is home to some of Sydney's most idealistic beaches and lifestyle communities. At the northmost peak is Palm Beach, which curves around a postcard perfect peninsula and is famous for being the star of TV's Home and Away. The Newport is a historic pub. It was founded in 1880 and is a charming place to enjoy a tasty lunch and an even more delicious view. Further south past Narambeen lagoon is Dee Why Beach, followed by Freshwater - both of which are lined with cafes, restaurants and Norfolk Island Pines, and are no doubt hotspots for picnickers on the weekend. Manly is the administrative centre of the Northern Beaches council; its Central Civic Mall, The Corso, offers alfresco dining and specialty stores with traditional facings. It bisects the peninsula from Manly Beach on the Pacific Ocean, to Manly Wharf in Sydney Harbour.

While geographically close to Sydney CBD, the Northern Beaches area lacks a train line, with buses servicing most suburbs. Real estate in the region is also varied - most of the coastal towns have a mixture of free-standing houses and low-level apartment blocks, with water views attracting a premium.
