"Lovely Beach, but high density housing."

This section of the ridiculously long Pittwater Road encompasses apartments, houses, businesses, car parks, and, of course, many shops.

It’s a very busy road and something of a hub in the local community – and particularly as a median stopping point for the Pittwater buses to and from Sydney and the Pittwater Peninsula.

Pittwater Road offers many services including the Dee Why RSL, which is visited by international performers, numerous diverse and ethnic food stores, Kingsway Centre with medical specialists including paediatricians, and, late night chemists.

There is a large council car park in the centre of Dee Why, and it is walking distance to all the facilities and shops. The beach and beachfront restaurants, however, are rather further away, best reached by Howard’s Ave, Oaks Ave or Pacific Parade.

This is an area of high density housing, and the larger blocks and houses, are more concentrated on the western side of Pittwater Road – with a predominance of apartment blocks between Pittwater Rd and the beach.

There are some great restaurants along the beachfront reserve, including the iconic Stella Blu.

Dee Why remains a great place to visit, but residentially, it seems to have become predominantly large rental properties. It may be a good place for a young couple starting out, to buy into the Northern Beaches, but one should choose carefully as there seems to be a glut of apartments on the market in this area. It’s also a comparatively rougher neighbourhood than those further north.
