Stretching from Palm Beach to Manly, the Northern Beaches boasts more than half of all the beaches in Sydney and a population of more than 266,000.                                       

Living on the Northern Beaches means checking surf conditions from the office and taking your children to the beach after school. It’s about busy sportsfields, bush walking and bike trails on the weekend. It’s an active lifestyle with clean waterways, beautiful wildlife and vibrant events backed by great services and infrastructure.

Northern Beaches Council is committed to partnering with the community to protect, improve and create our future.
