Getting to Your Palm Beach Accommodation
Palm Beach is located 56 km north of Sydney Airport. Public transport is available - you can take a train from the airport to Wynyard station, and a bus thereafter to reach Palm Beach. Public taxis are widely accessible as well. However, a good option is to rent a car at the airport. This will enable you to move around your Palm Beach holiday rental freely and explore its many hidden beaches, stunning viewpoints and stylish waterfront restaurants.
Another option (if you have the time) is to take a ferry ride from Circular Quay to Manly, and then take a bus or taxi to Palm Beach. If you are travelling from any other city or town by train or bus, you will arrive at Central Station which has plenty of public buses to Palm Beach.
What to eat on your Palm Beach holiday
According to most Australians, Palm Beach is the go-to destination for the best fish and chips in Sydney. While this delicious seaside treat is sold in almost every loal eatery, Palm Beach Fish and Chips has garnered a special name for itself. People have been flocking here since the 1930s to dig into those fluffy beer batter coated portions of hake served with freshly fried crunchy chips, lemon and salad greens.
The Boathouse is another eatery which is known for its fish and chips. The Boathouse’s burgers and brunch are also quite popular. For seafood, Barrenjoey House is a popular choice and, as well as their steak, the chocolate pudding is one of the most recommended items on their menu.

Older children also indulge in boogie boarding on a dedicated surf beach. This sheltered beach is ideal for swimming and sea bathing for kids of all ages.
West of Palm Beach and across from Pittwater, the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park is worth a visit. Known for its important history and scenic beauty, the park is a popular school excursion. Bring along the kids to explore its several walking and hiking trails. One of the preferred ways of getting to the park is by ferry or boat. It is a treat to watch the wallabies, kangaroos, koalas, goannas and other wild animals in their natural habitat in this national park. History lovers especially enjoy the Aboriginal Heritage walk with enchanting rock art and engravings by the West Head Guringai tribe.
The Basin has been a popular spot for camping for over 100 years now. Complete with restrooms, picnic tables and BBQs, it is also an ideal picnic spot for families. The deep water lagoon makes the perfect swimming pool. Bobbin Head is also a popular picnic spot.

The seated BBQs, picnic tables and open green spaces are set against a backdrop of beautiful sandstone carvings and make the perfect setting for a family day out.

Where to Swim and Surf at Palm Beach
The northern suburbs of Sydney are home to some of the city's most breathtaking beaches. The calm waters of Barrenjoey Beach are best for a swim here, especially with kids. Another option is the eponymous Palm Beach with its sheltered rock pool. Crowds are usually restricted to locals, and the long beach ensures you'll have a stretch to yourself. Neighbouring Whale Beach is small but surrounded with shaded reserves, and the rock pool here is suited to kids.
For an unforgettable experience, take a short ferry to Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. The Mackerel and Currawong beaches are both beautiful, but it's the hidden Resolute Beach, accessible only through a bushwalk, that will make your day! If you are into surfing, then hit Palm Beach itself for the best waves. The string of beaches that stretches south along the coast all the way to Manly all have great waves for surfing.
