Palm Beach vacation rentals

A taste of wild, well-to-do Sydney in Palm Beach

Palm Beach is a jewel at the end of Sydney's northern beaches, and a veritable playground for sun seekers, surfers, and weekenders fresh from their offices back in the metropolis. Check out the hills and you'll see glimmering villas overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Palm Beach vacation rentals tumbling down to wave-washed shores, and towering lighthouses encircled by chichi bars and shopping boutiques. For stylish retail therapy and a bout of the wilder side of the New South Wales capital, it simply can't be beatenÉ

Enjoy the great outdoors in Palm Beach

The ocean-spattered headlands that poke into the Pacific are a real treat for joggers, hikers, dog walkers, and morning yogis who like to pull their stretches to the glow of the rising southern sun. After hitting the pretty pathways up there, you could while away days bobbing in kayaks around the coastal inlets, or soaking up the sun on the bisque-hued beaches. Others will seek out Palm Beach vacation rentals close to the harbors, where tailor-made yachting outings and bespoke culinary boat trips show a more refined side of Aussie seaside life.

Lighthouses and long sands in Palm Beach

The beautiful Barrenjoey Lighthouse, raised in 1881, marks the very end of Sydney's northern beaches. You can take guided tours of the heritage lighting rooms there, and enjoy sweeping views down over Broken Bay and the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. And talking of Ku-ring-gai Chase, that vast wilderness is just across the water from here. Head over to unravel tales of enthralling Aboriginal history, to hike through misty rainforests, to go bushwalking through orchid beds, and picnic between the yachts on Bobbin Head.

Find the perfect season in Palm Beach

The summers in this corner of New South Wales can be scorching hot, while the winters can be cool and rainy. That's an endorsement for the spring and fall periods if ever there was one, so seek out those Palm Beach vacation rentals to enjoy temperatures in the high 70s between April and May, and then again in October and November. The bonuses of coming then aren't limited to the weather, either. You'll also find fewer folk on the lighthouse paths and beaches, and lower rates in the villas overlooking the ocean.

Nature north of Sydney in Palm Beach

This northern tip of the Sydney coastal strip is famed for its high cliffs and rocky headlands, all of which occasionally give way to long stretches of glowing, golden sand and low isthmuses where Palm Beach vacation rentals crowd between the shores. You can see one of the great wildernesses of New South Wales, too. It's out to the west, sprawling with the reserves of the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. Go there to encounter koala bears in the rainforests, Aboriginal rock engravings, creeks, and hidden rivers.
