Suburb Profile


One of the most popular beachside suburbs on the Northern Beaches, Collaroy is a trendy coastal hub with a sprawling beachfront and striking properties with impressive ocean views.

Nestled between Narrabeen, Dee Why and Collaroy Plateau, Collaroy is just 22 kilometres north of the Sydney CBD and 11 kilometres away from Manly Beach. Collaroy was originally part of Narrabeen up until 1881 when the S.S. Collaroy, a bulk cargo ship, ran aground on the shore at neighbouring Long Reef Beach. The Collaroy of today is a mecca for surf enthusiasts, tourists, and families looking to settle down in a friendly suburb that offers plenty to see and do.

The sprawling coastline that makes up Narrabeen Beach and Collaroy Beach is the longest expanse of beach on the Northern Beaches. Stretching for 3.6 kilometres, the beachfront is an irresistible haven for beachgoers and offers some of the best beachfront properties in the region. Most of the properties along Collaroy Beach are just a few steps away from the sand, while Pittwater Road immediately opposite the beach offers chic beachside apartments and hip beach shacks.

Along with swimming, surfing and sunbaking, Collaroy is all about cafe culture, and wining and dining. The suburb’s commercial strip is immediately opposite the beach and offers numerous cafes, restaurants, shops, pubs, a cinema, and surf life-saving club. The Collaroy Beach Playground is next to the surf life-saving club and is the perfect outdoor spot for active toddlers.

With every amenity you could need right at your fingertips, including one of the most picturesque beaches in Sydney, Collaroy certainly has a lot to offer.
