Queenscliff

Suburb Profile

Overview

It might be small but what Queenscliff lacks in size it makes up for in location, stunning waterfront properties, surrounding natural beauty and some of the best surf on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. Snuggled between Freshwater Beach and famous Manly Beach, Queenscliff is a coastal hotspot for surf enthusiasts or those who believe that life is better at the beach.

Located just 17 kilometres north of the Sydney CBD and 27 kilometres south of beautiful Palm Beach, Queenscliff’s location is one of its main drawcards. With Manly Lagoon on one side, the breathtaking Pacific Ocean to the east and the waterways of Sydney’s North Harbour just a few minutes away, some of the best natural bounty the Northern Beaches has to offer is well within your reach.

Classified as the northern headland of Manly Beach, Queenscliff’s modest strip of beachfront is often mistaken as being part of Manly Beach, but make no mistake, Queenscliff has its own beach and is known for having some of the “heaviest” waves (bomboras) that break out at sea. When large swells are churning, Queenscliff Beach is where you’ll find many pro surfers testing themselves on towering waves.

Known fondly to the locals as ‘Queensie’, Queenscliff offers a relaxed coastal lifestyle that’s influenced by the surf, the sand, and the quintessential cafe culture that dominates the beachfront thoroughfare. Throw in some beach volleyball, kayaking and scuba diving at nearby Dive Centre Manly and you can see why there’s never a dull moment in Queenscliff.
