4 Reasons to Visit Palm Beach, NSW

4 Reasons to Visit Palm Beach, NSW

If you haven’t been to Palm Beach in NSW, then you haven’t yet lived! Palm Beach is the epitome of the Australian beach lifestyle; heck, it’s why Australia’s favourite TV soap ‘Home and Away’ is shot here!

If your idea of the perfect holiday consists of the sun, sand, and surf, then you will not find a better location to fit the bill than Palm Beach. While the beach is certainly enough of an attraction to make you want to visit the suburb, there are more reasons to visit this gorgeous coastal destination.

As the manager of Beach Stays, a holiday rental company that specialises in accommodation in Palm Beach, and being a Palm Beach local myself, I’d like to share with you all the things that make Palm Beach the amazing destination that it is and why you should pay it a visit!

It’s a coastal wonderland

Palm Beach

Known for its beach, Palm Beach is the quintessential beach town. Covering 2.3 km of the Northern Beaches coastline, from Little Head to Barrenjoey Head, Palm Beach offers excellent surf and a protected swimming area in an ocean pool.

This picturesque coastline has attracted the wealthy to build luxury holiday houses, which are a popular choice of accommodation in Palm Beach. Many of these houses are available to book through our website.

It’s a naturists dream

Palm Beach is home to a number of natural parks and reserves including the Ku-ring-gai Chase Natural Park, Hordern Park, Wiltshire Park, McKay Reserve and Dark Gully Park.

There is also an 800 m walking trail that offers spectacular views over the Ku-ring-gai Chase Natural Park and coastline which is a must for any visitor to experience.

It’s the perfect wedding destination

Wedding on Beach

Palm Beach is a very popular wedding destination with several choice venues to choose from. The most popular being The Boat House and the Palm Beach Golf Club.

Palm Beach delivers the perfect setting for a wedding, and there is plenty of accommodation in Palm Beach for the bridal party and wedding guests. Check out my earlier article to find out what accommodation I recommend for weddings.

It’s close to Sydney City

Sydney CBD

Palm Beach offers the best of both worlds. For those looking for a sea-change, it is quiet, peaceful and every bit what a coastal town should be, yet it’s also incredibly close to the city. Therefore, you can get away for a weekend getaway and arrive in Palm Beach in under an hour and feel as though in Queensland’s Sunshine Coast or the likes of.

Because of its proximity to Sydney City, Palm Beach is a very popular tourist destination for Sydney-siders, and whether you’re looking to book accommodation in a hotel, apartment or holiday house, you’re sure to find what you want in an idyllic location.


If you haven’t visited Palm Beach, then you’re missing out! Palm Beach is one of Australia’s most picturesque locations and is famously known for its beach, which is the setting for the TV show, ‘Home and Away’.

Aside from the beach, there are many reasons to want to visit the region; it’s a coastal wonderland, it’s a naturists dream, it’s an ideal wedding destination, and it’s less than 1hr drive from Sydney City.
