An ideal place elevated between two iconic beaches yet close to the best harbour and city in the world.

"Our paradise found"

We moved to Queenscliff 2 years ago and it is heaven in many ways. Kids love the fact that you can choose between Freshie beach or Queenscliff/Manly Beach - for the little kids the playground next to the lagoon is so impressive and popular. Kids can also play all sorts of sports. We simply love the fact to stroll down to the buzz in Manly or live the local beach village life in Freshwater. Queenscliff is in between two pearls, one more cosmopolitan and one relaxed beach village feel.
We love Queenscliff and have found our Sydney paradise!!

"Queenscliff - Close to Manly"

Queenscliff is a suburb of Sydney 16 kilometres north-east of the CBD in the local government area of the Warringah Council but still considered to be in the Northern beaches district of Sydney.

Bounded on the north by North Manly and Freshwater, the east by the Pacific Ocean, the south by Manly and to the west by North Manly. The population in 2006 was 3049 with 12% under 18 and 12% over 60.

The Queenscliff Rock Pool is located at the top end of Manly Beach at North Steyne. Measuring 50m by 14 m the pool is shallow and the sides are not parallel. The pool is cut into the rock platform and has marked lanes. As it is a tidal pool it is flushed by the ocean twice daily. A good place to swim your laps.

A small piece of trivia, there are 2 public toilets in Queenscliff. These are at the Amateur Swimming Club and the Surf Club.

Property is not cheap in the area with the median price of houses at $950,000 and units at $490,000. At the time of writing house prices were falling slightly while unit prices are increasing. Swings and roundabouts I guess.
