This northernmost Sydney beach is situated on a narrow peninsula which culminates in Barrenjoey Headland with it's lighthouse.
Palm Beach is adjacent to the suburbs of Whale Beach and Avalon. It is most notable for being the location for the shooting of Seven Network's Home and Away television series.
From Palm Beach's jetty, ferries cross Pittwater to the unspoilt expanse of Ku-ring-gai National Park. Palm Beach was named after, in the 1880's, for the cabbage tree palms that grow at its' southern end.
Palm Beach is now widely regarded as one of Sydney's most affluent enclaves where loftily silted homes soak up year round sunlight and sweeping oceans views.
Sydney's famous Manly Beach is only a 30 minute drive away with JetCat and Ferry services to Sydney's Central Business District, The Opera House, Toranga Zoo and of course The Harbour Bridge.
Sydney is the capital city of the Australian state of New South Wales and Australia's largest and oldest city, founded in 1788. With a population exceeding 4 million, the Sydney metropolis is the larger - and arguably the more influential - of the two main financial, transport, trade and cultural centres of Australia (the other being Melbourne, Sydney's long term rival to the title of pre-eminent Australian city). Sydney is a significant global and domestic tourist destination and is regularly declared to be one of the most beautiful and livable cities in the world, admired for its harbour, beaches and cosmopolitan culture.
