Waterways, beaches and seaside villages
Spanning the area just north of Manly to the tip of the peninsula at the mouth of the Hawkesbury River, Sydney's beautiful Northern Beaches and Pittwater offer you relaxation and recreation side by side. The area encompasses kilometres of open coastline along laid back seaside suburbs including Curl Curl, Dee Why, Long Reef and Avalon. You can catch a seaplane to a riverside restaurant from Palm Beach; the last beach on the peninsula where hit series "Home and Away" is filmed. With a number of popular surf breaks lining the region, it is inevitably imbued with a strong surfing culture. Great seaside dining is on offer from all of the Northern Beaches.
On the other side of the peninsula is Pittwater, which runs along the thriving native bushland of Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. For one of the best views of Pittwater, have a pub lunch at the Newport Arms Hotel's waterfront beer garden. You can participate in any number of water activities in Pittwater including kitesurfing, canoeing, sailing and fishing. With its pockets of rainforest, rivers, creeks and waterfalls, rugged sandstone headlands and wonderful examples of Aboriginal rock art, Ku-ring-gai Chase is a fascinating place to bushwalk.
