"Gorgeous views, but prohibitive prices, and hectic in summer."

This Road has become one of the most exclusive areas for property in all of the Northern Beaches. One side is the beautiful Pacific, and on sloping blocks opposite, stand the homes (or investments) of the rich and famous.

Many of these properties don’t offer a great deal of privacy, especially as the tourists drive slowly down the road, either looking for a rare parking spot, or attempting to spy a celebrity.

Palm Beach, Whale Beach, and northwards to Newport Beach, all may be recognizable to some, as the locations of the popular television series “Home and Away” – which you can often watch being filmed.

The southern end of the beach is called ‘Kiddies Corner’ by the locals, as it is protected and safe for the little ones, with barely gentle swell. There is also a 35 metre ocean rock pool here.

There are a couple of café/restaurants about half way down the road, and the southern side is home to the magnificent Palm Beach Surf Life Saving Club, and elite Cabbage Tree Club, both shaded by the magnificent trees that gave the area it’s name. The buildings, constructed in the early 1920’s, are just beautiful, gracious and stand on large level blocks. The SLSC is one of the biggest in the state.

Much of the real estate sitting up on the high headland is used as holiday properties, and with the views, and exclusivity some are rented for as much as $30 000 a week in peak season.

Parking at Palm Beach, in the summer months, is nightmarish.
