  • Address: Whale Beach, New South Wales, Australia 2107, Australia
  • Hours: Daily 24/7
Whale Beach is a beachside suburb of northern Sydney named for — yes, you guessed it, a whale that was once beached here. It is best known for an area of surf called “the Wedge,” which breaks off a rock reef on the northern edge of the beach. Besides, surfing, fishing and swimming are popular activities — though currents can be strong and it is wise to check conditions before entering the water. 

Also of note is a small bungalow home at Careel Head designed by architect Alexander Stewart Jolly. It was built with sandstone that was quarried on site in 1931, and is recognized for its heritage and significance. Take a walk along the beach, enjoy the surf, or simply relax. With trees providing some shade, it’s not a bad idea just to take a seat in the sand and enjoy the scenery.

Practical Info

Whale Beach can be found 40 kilometers outside of Sydney's CBD. Access the beach using Whale Beach Road, which leads down to beachfront facilities including a car park and picnic area.
