Nestled among spotted gums, enjoy the tranquil Pittwater views from the rooms and verandahs of our Barrenjoey house, opposite the verdant forests of Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park. Summer or winter retreat Great for the long hot summers, the house is just a few minutes drive or cycle to Sydney’s most iconic northern beaches of Palm Beach, Whale Beach & Avalon. Water activities are limitless here: with swimming, paddleboarding, surfing, fishing, & sailing, just to name a few. As a winter retreat, Treehouse Palm Beach offers the same tranquil Pittwater backdrop & is handy to many scenic walks, & the same boating & fishing opportunities. You may like to take a ferry ride to the central coast from the Palm Beach terminal, sample the great cuisine offered in the range of local eateries or keep warm and toasty at the Treehouse, entertaining friends with a roaring fire in its welcome open fireplace. The rear of our property backs onto the impressive McKay Reserve with its rocky outcrops and majestic vista. This native bushland offers walking tracks & is a sanctuary for local wildlife & flora. "Life is good at the beach!" Close to three of Sydney's most beautiful beaches, with its peaceful Pittwater setting there is time to explore the rich treasures of this picturesque setting, whether its the surf or the bay, or their perimeters. Food may be as simple as Palm Beach's famous hamburger or fish & chip shops across from the ferry terminal, or the more tantalising cuisines offered in the many popular Northern Beaches cafes & restaurants. Minutes from our home is the award winning Jonah's Restaurant, The Boathouse Palm Beach, Moby Dick's Whale Beach, Dunes and Barrenjoey House, all foci for fashionable wedding receptions.
