Restaurant
“This area was settled by lots of Italians after WW2. The guys who've set up this restaurant are second generation and their sourdough pizza with authentic, high quality toppings is fantastic - and if you stick to pizza and salad, the bill is very reasonable. Have a walk along Narrabeen Lake afterwards to let the food go down!”

Park
“Any time of year is a good time to visit Narrabeen Lagoon. This large coastal lagoon is located half way along the Northern Beaches peninsula and is a great place for kids to cycle – whether they are toddlers on training wheels or school-aged kids needing to burn off some energy. My family loves cycling the Narrabeen Lagoon circuit. I love it because it is easy on my knees, it gets the kids out in nature, and you can take it as fast or as slow as you like. The 8.4 km off-road nature trail winds through parklands and lush ecosystems that are home to over 190 bird species, such as egrets and black swans. Strategically placed around the circuit are four picnic grounds, Middle Creek, Jamieson, Berry and Billarong.”
