My partner and I travelled from the city it takes about 1 hour 40 mins. The beach is beautiful and there's a lake beside the golf course it's beautiful too. We had lunch at the boathouse, food was lovely but slightly over priced. Very quiet place in a remote location, but a good day trip away from the city.

Didn't visit as a trip - we went alone expecting at least a shop with some home and away postcards and magnets - this doesn't exist. Nice beach with two overpriced cafés with a bad selection of food. A salmon sandwich was 17 bucks alone. We took on the sites and walked up the hill to Dunes which was cheaper,... More

So pretty, a perfect place for a walk as the beach is so long and you might even catch the crew filming. There's a few little places for food too, expensive for tourists but the average for Australian prices.

I visited here for the second time last week. Enjoyed it as much as the first time. Great scenery and lovely clean beach. Sad to see Barrenjoey Point after the fire, but glad the lighthouse was not affected. Last visit was winter so didn't swim, as it was warmer this time, it was a must that my daughter and I... More

A lovely beach, hired a board and hit the wave. There are a couple of cafe's to get a bite to eat. We got the bus from Sydney which took a while but was worth it

Visited this beach with my fiancée and her family. The beach is simply beautiful. It is large, well kept and in a very nice area. Their was also very good public toilets, showers and changing facilities. We had one home and away fanatic in the group who took a bit more away from the trip as for them it was... More

View from Barrenjoey lighthouse is good. But is Palm Beach worth the trip up from Sydney? Depends. Its a nice beach and all, but there are many great beaches around Australia. If you aren't getting out of the cities then yeah, its probably worth coming up. Otherwise, up to you. You'll have a pleasant time I'm sure!

Palm Beach, boiling hot sand, lovely water and parking is $3 an hour. What more do you need to know?
