Warriewood, NSW

Located approximately 26 kilometres north of the Sydney central business district, Warriewood is a primarily residential area. It’s bounded by Mona Vale to the north, North Narrabeen to the south, and the lush Garigal National Park to the west, with the east side offering stunning views of the Pacific Ocean. This unique positioning between the sea and the green hinterland offers residents and visitors the best of both worlds.

Known For:

  • A quintessential Australian beach suburb

Warriewood Beach

Warriewood is known for its beach, Warriewood Beach, which is a popular spot for swimming, surfing and sunbathing. The beach is patrolled during the warmer months and features a large car park, picnic area, and kiosk, making it a favoured spot for families and beachgoers. Nearby, the Turimetta Beach, a smaller and quieter beach, is also known for its beautiful views and natural setting.

One of the notable features of Warriewood is the Warriewood Wetlands, the largest remaining sand plain wetlands in the Northern Beaches area. It’s home to a wide variety of bird species and offers a series of boardwalks and walking tracks, providing a wonderful opportunity for bird watching and enjoying the tranquil natural surroundings.

Close to Warriewood is the beautiful waterfall known as the Warriewood Blowhole, or the “Warriewood Waterfall”. This hidden gem is located within the Monash Country Club. It’s an impressive waterfall, especially after heavy rains when the water volume is substantial.

The waterfall is located at the end of a walking trail, which starts at the Irrawong Road in North Narrabeen. This trail is part of the larger Irrawong Reserve, an urban bushland area consisting of wetlands and a running creek that feeds the waterfall.

The track to the waterfall is a relatively easy walk, suitable for most fitness levels, but it can get a bit slippery after rains so it’s always advisable to wear good walking shoes. The walk offers visitors a tranquil bushland experience, with the surrounding vegetation home to a variety of bird species.

The waterfall itself is quite a sight, cascading down the rock face into a small pool below. During the rainy season, the waterfall can become quite powerful, creating a ‘blowhole’ effect, which is how it got its name.

Warriewood represents the quintessential Australian coastal suburb, offering a relaxed lifestyle with its beautiful beaches, natural reserves, and comfortable amenities, while being just a short distance away from the hustle and bustle of central Sydney.
