Located just 13 kilometres north of the Sydney CBD, within walking distance of famous Manly Beach and with its own charming beaches on offer, Fairlight is a modern seaside suburb with an old-world feel.
Fairlight was originally named Red Hill due to the pre-World War II red gravel surface of its main thoroughfare, Sydney Road. The suburb was renamed Fairlight in the late 19th century after nearby Fairlight House, which was built by Henry Gilbert Smith. Along with a sublime location and stunning natural surrounds, the historic appeal of Fairlight lies in its many early 20th century cottages and post-war bungalows that are dotted along tree-lined streets.
Discreetly located between Manly, Queenscliff and Balgowlah, Fairlight has plenty to offer locals and visitors alike. Whether you have a hankering for the beach, a walk among nature or a touch of shopping, Fairlight has an outlet for all tastes. While Manly Beach is only a few minutes down the road, Fairlight’s own beach is a prime location in its own right. Lying adjacent to the popular Fairlight Walk track, Fairlight Beach offers pristine white sands and calm waters for families with young children or those who prefer to unwind in total relaxation. With Sydney Harbour’s Sydney Heads clearly visible from the beachfront, Fairlight Beach is a true seaside gem.
Away from the water, Fairlight has plenty of upscale dining and boutique shopping to treat yourself with, not to mention the prized Manly Golf Club is right next door.
