CURL CURL At A Glance
The laid-back beachside suburbs of Curl Curl and North Curl Curl are a sports lover’s paradise. Locals love to keep it to themselves, and who can blame them, when they have long stretches of sand dunes, the emerald blue ocean, and plentiful green space on their doorstep.
The quiet beachside lifestyle.
Avoid John Fisher Park on a Saturday – netball, soccer and rugby competitions are all in play and it gets very hectic.
Curl Curl Beach is renowned for the infamous ‘Garbage Bowl’, a permanent southern rip.
The beauty of Curl Curl lies in all things natural, from the rocky headlands to the sun-soaked beach to the open parklands – locals simply love to be outdoors.
With breathtaking sunrises, this quiet stretch of the Northern Beaches has rolling sand dunes, a lagoon, a rock pool and a reserve – making this a family-friendly wonderland. Curl Curl is a locals-only destination, as Sydneysiders tend to flock to neighbouring Dee Why and Manly for a beachside experience.
Gusto on the Beach is a café located at the southern end of the beach. It’s the spot to sit back and watch surfers, body boarders, ocean swimmers, sunbathers and the rolling ocean waves. Alternatively, cast a fishing line into the deep blue.
Nestled alongside Curl Curl Lagoon is John Fisher Park. This expansive parkland is home to netball, softball and hockey for the Northern Beaches – at the height of the season this area is organised chaos.
Although Curl Curl boasts a laid-back lifestyle with clusters of neighbourhood shops sprinkled around the suburb, locals only need to travel to neighbouring Dee Why or Manly to be immersed in a bustling vibe.
Homes reign supreme in Curl Curl, making this area a magnet for families with children
