Summer means it’s time to party, but no one wants to stay indoors when it’s perfect swimming weather! Luckily, Sydney is blessed with spectacular beaches that are ideal for holding events. Whether you’re entertaining relatives from overseas, celebrating a birthday, or just loving life with your family and friends, here’s some top beaches to choose from.
Family-friendly events are easy on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. Collaroy Beach is great for all ages, with safe swimming conditions, an accessible beach reserve, wheelchair facilities, a rock pool and walking paths. A playground keeps the kids occupied and there are picnic areas to set up for your party. Bring eskies for afternoon drinks and hire event catering in Sydney to feed the hungry hordes for you.
When you want to make a day of it, no one will get bored at Balmoral Beach. Located near famous Taronga Zoo, the sparkling harbour-front spot offers snorkelling, kayaking, sailing and calm-water swimming in an enclosure.
Stop to admire the heritage-listed Balmoral Bathers Pavilion, walk to colonial fortifications at Middle Head, and hold your party in the grassy parkland. Public spaces in Mosman are free of charge for events of up to 50 people, so go ahead and book that hot dog cart for your special occasion.
Just south of iconic Bondi, Bronte Beach offers a more local vibe and plenty of facilities for group events. Rock pools and an ocean-fed lap pool let kids swim in sheltered safety, while the south headland is a prime spot for surfers. Behind the beach, you’ll find a grassy park for picnics with toilets, tables and shade. For the littlies, the playground boasts a rocking boat, monkey bars, a spinning net and climbing unit.
The stretch of coast at Manly is perfect for hosting any type of summer get-together, but Shelly Beach is the one for lovers of marine life. The reserve forms part of Cabbage Tree Bay, and snorkellers enjoy shallow waters teeming with tropical fish, turtles, stingrays, dolphins and even the occasional wobbegong. Just the thing to provide some entertainment before lunch! The facilities include showers, toilets and paid parking.
For fans of the TV series Home and Away, a visit to iconic Palm Beach is a must. The backdrop for the fictional town of Summer Bay, Palm Beach is one of Sydney’s most scenic stretches of coastline.
Picnic under pine trees, follow the trail to heritage-listed Barrenjoey Lighthouse, swim in the ocean pool and kayak on calm waters, then treat everyone to a hot dog and a cold drink or two!
