BEACHES

This home is located a short 10-15 minute walk from patrolled South Curl Curl beach and scrumptious South Curl Curl Cafe via the Batho Street stairs and a leisurely 20 minute walk (5 minute drive) from patrolled Freshwater Beach, restaurants, cafes and Freshwater Village Shops.

Famous Manly Beach is a 5-10 minute drive, or 15 minute bike ride (we have 4 adult bikes and several differing sized kids bikes) or 40 minute walk.

We love doing the coastal walk from South Curl Curl across the headland, along Freshwater Beach, across Queenscliff headland, along Manly Beach and then through to Shelly Beach via the Manly Scenic Walkway. You usually see water dragons along the way and can go for a snorkel at Shelly Beach or continue on to walk to the Quarantine Station and North Head.

SHOPPING

Local shops (Cheries Pies & Bakery, Take Away Chips, Grocer, Butcher, Newsagent, Pharmacy, Liquor Store and Petrol Station) are a 2 minute walk away.

It is a 10-15 minute downhill walk to amazing Berkelo Bakery/Cafe and Westfield Warringah Mall Shopping Centre.

CAFES AND EATING OUT

Our favourite cafes are South Curl Curl Beach Cafe, Penny Lane, Girdlers at Dee Why (or Westfield Warringah Mall), the Boathouse at Shelly Beach Manly and COOH at North Curl Curl.

Some places we like to eat out are at Hugo's at Manly Wharf, Sunset Sabi Manly, Stowaway Bar Freshwater, Baretto Pilu Freshwater, Shandar Tandoori Freshwater and the Newport Hotel.


Buses, including direct to Manly Wharf (takes 10 minutes), to the northern beaches or to the Sydney CBD (takes 50 minutes) are a 2 minute walk to Harbord Road. You can also catch the BLine Bus from Westfield Warringah Mall which takes 35 minutes (this bus stop is a 10-15 minute downhill walk from our house).

We like to catch the ferry from Manly Wharf into the city - it takes 18 minutes and is a gorgeous way to see the harbour, Kirribilli House, the Opera House and many other Sydney sites.

Travel to and from the airport is best by taxi or shuttle bus.
