Get In

By Train

There is no train network on the entire Northern Beaches. The nearest train station is at Chatswood, where a 136 bus route from Chatswood Station will take you to Dee Why Main and Dee Why Beach.

By Bus

From Wynyard. York St, Stands C-D. Most buses going to the Northern Beaches will stop at Dee Why Main on Pittwater Road. If you're unsure just ask the driver. The fare should cost you around $5 per adult. If in doubt check the Sydney Buses Website [1] or ring the Transport Infoline on 131 500.

From Manly. The Bus stop on the Wharf has two buses that will get you to Dee Why Main and Dee Why Beach. The 136 bus route which runs between Chatswood and Manly is the most reliable way to get to Dee Why Beach as it comes every half hour between the early morning and midnight. The 159 bus comes only once an hour and is a very unreliable service, it too goes to both Dee Why Main and Dee Why Beach.



  • Dee Why beach is a pleasant beach that can get quite busy on weekends. The northern end is usually less busy but is unlikely to be patrolled.
  • Ten pin bowling and live music shows are available at the Dee Why RSL.
  • Dee Why Lagoon is a nature reserve and RAMSAR wetland that is home to many migratory bird species. It is probably best viewed from Long Reef beach.
