Dee Why Beach

Sydney sightseeing


This beach is popular with swimmers and body surfers. The conditions aren't quite right for surfing, but there are times when good waves have been seen. The beach is patrolled most days.

Dee Why Beach

The beach runs 1.2 kilometres long with sand dunes to the north separating it from the Dee Why Lagoon, a 77 hectare nature reserve home to some very rare bird life. At the south end of the beach you will find picnic grounds, electric BBQs, playground equipment and swimming pool. There is free parking around the beach area and next to the surf lifesaving club. Dee Why is 18 kilometres north east of Sydney and is serviced by local buses and accessible by car.

The origin of this suburb's unusual name is unknown. Some locals say Dee Why was the aboriginal word for the area, while others say an early land surveyor marked the letters 'D' and 'Y' on his map. No one really seems to care however - they're too busy enjoying the beach. Address: Dee Why, NSW, 2099.
