2101 Narrabeen

Surrounded by water with Garigal National park as a backdrop, Narrabeen is a place of natural beauty where you can enjoy many outdoor activities such as water sports, bush walking and cycling. Possessing one of the northern beaches greatest natural assets in Narrabeen Lagoon, it is a haven for wild life.

The world famous surfing beach of North Narrabeen is located at the entrance to the lagoon and played an important part in the history of surfing culture in Sydney. It provided a breeding ground of some of the world’s best surfers. Shop front murals reflect a vibrant beach culture.

Though somewhat dilapidated and in need of a bit of ‘urban renewal’, the shopping strip is full of energy and life with numerous restaurants dotting the main shopping strip along Pittwater Rd.
