Go glam with Sydney's rich and famous in swanky Palm Beach

Feeling elite? About 40 km from the centre of Sydney, this scenic coastal suburb in the Northern Beaches region drips with luxury and class. While this is a wealthy area, you can find some cosy cottages with Palm Beach vacation rentals, and you might catch a glimpse of a celeb or 2 while you're golfing on an impeccable course or enjoying some fine dining. As for the outdoors, the calm waters to the south are perfect for swimming, and wave-lovers will dig the swells on the northern side of Palm Beach.

Things to do

The sights of Sydney are a few clicks away

Take a walking tour around Palm Beach and admire the views at the Barrenjoey Lighthouse, a 19th-century structure at Sydney's northernmost point. Many Palm Beach vacation rentals are on this hilly area, and the Palm Beach Golf Course is also here, so take a few swings while you breathe in the salty sea air. See the Aboriginal heritage sites at the neighbouring Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, or rent a car for a quick drive into Sydney to grab a selfie against the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge, and wander around Darling Harbour. Stop by the Royal Botanical Garden while you're there too.

Activities

Get fancy in the creme de la creme of suburbs

Get dolled up for a night out in the chic downtown area of Palm Beach. If you're keen to spend some cash, try some trendy threads at the fancy boutiques, and treat yourself to dinner with a waterfront view. Take a charter boat into the ocean from some deep-sea fishing or a spectacular sunset cruise. Wide beaches run up the east and west sides of Palm Beach, and the surf here is great for swimming. The whole area is worth a walk, not just to ogle at the ritzy houses, but to eat up the ocean views from clifftop coasts.

Weather

Most days are hot and dry, so grab your sunnies and swimmers

February to June are the rainy months, but even then the storms are not too intense and the humidity lessens, so it's a nice time to enjoy coastal hikes and maybe see some migrating humpback whales. During the winter, temps are in the mid teens, and water temps get chilly in the upper teens. Summer is high season, and with temps in the upper 20s and water in the mid 20s, this is a terrific time to hit the beaches. As smart travellers might deduce, it's best to book Palm Beach vacation rentals far in advance, especially in this exclusive area.

Natural highlights

Where the nature and landscape are as rich as the residents

You won't have to look long to understand why the wealthy and famous love it here. Southern Palmy is mostly flat and full of lush vegetation surrounded by expansive golden beaches. The north rises to a moderate hill that has rocky coast and stunning ocean views. From Palm Beach, you can take a quick ferry to Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, a huge protected area with beaches, wetlands and bushlands. Its snorkeling spot is called The Basin, and you can see seahorses, starfish and tropical fish. And, of course, whales migrate through the Tasman Sea between April and December.
