Dee Why Beach is located on Sydney's northern beaches between Collaroy to the north and Curl Curl to the south.

The beach promenade and facilities have had a major upgrade over the past 18 months and as a result Dee Why Beach has become a very popular family spot.

The southern part of the beach features a great enclosed playground, with plenty of tables and seating, making it an ideal spot for families with young children. Nearby is also a rockpool with showers and toilets.

Dee Why beach is a patrolled surf beach and is ideal for swimming, body surfing and surfing.

Behind the Dee Why Surf club is a large car park and also brand new shower and toilet facilities as well as drinking water fountains. Near the car park is another smaller playground and an oval, where kids can play cricket or just kick the ball. Children can also ride their scooters and skateboards along the promenade or fly a kite


Across the road from the beach are many cafes, take away shops and restaurants, including a popular fish and chips shop, pizzeria and gelato bar.

On the weekends, you will often find musicians belting out their tunes and during special holidays, Dee Why beach becomes a host to many events, including Australia Day Big Breakfast on 26 January and "Music in March" free concerts being played every Sunday.

Dee Why Beach has something for everyone; so pack a picnic and head down to the beach this weekend. You won't be disappointed.
