My aunt took me to this beach which is more famously known as 'Summer Bay' as it is the spot Home and Away is filmed on. It really was something else, it was a massive stretch of sand with huge waves and a truly breathtaking beach. The sand was darker than other beaches dotted around Syndey as it was more... More

The public bus L90 goes out to the beach, takes roughly an hour and a half to get out there for under $5 on the Opal card. The tours of Summer Bay cost $150+ not worth the money the dont guarentee the stars will be on set. Do the walk up to the lighthouse!

As my wife is an avid Home & Away fan, we just had to visit Palm Beach whilst visiting my Daughter in Sydney. After about a hours drive from Greenwich we reached Palm Beach and found the beach to be rather really small and nothing special in comparison to others we had visited. In all honesty we only stumbled on... More

One hour North of Sydney lies Palm Beach which often surprises the tourists who have visited the City many times. From photos of this picturesque place, you can see the lighthouse and the National Park adjacent to it. The walk to the lighthouse is steep but well worth the view at the top. There are ferry rides to restaurants and... More

I like this beach but I don't think I would rush there again. I found it quite small and you have to bring your own food if you don't want to be limited with the kiosks that are there and don't offer too much. I expected more but maybe it is only me....

It took 1.5 hour to reach here from city. I walked from Palm Beach to Barrenjoey Lighthouse, which was pretty easy, took about 45 min return. But the view was great. Then I walked to Avalon Beach, this took me almost 3 hours. Most of the walk was on the road but it's alright, it's not difficult at all. The... More

For every irish person in Sydney....you've just got to go to Palm Beach with the hope of meeting the Braxtons. I went there in June and although I met no stars, it was such a good visit. Its about 45 minutes away from Bondi. When we were there the beach was lovely and calm. I couldnt get over how quiet... More

We hired a car and drove all the way to Palm beach, the intention was to hop few beaches along the way but without gps it was a bit of a challenge. Expect many traffic lights and a bit of jam in the afternoon. Palm beach has a nice flat long stretch of sand with a swimming pool at the... More
