The Northern Beaches is an area in the northern coastal suburbs of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia, located near the coast of the Pacific Ocean. This area extends south to the entrance of Port Jackson (Sydney Harbour), west to Middle Harbour and north to the entrance of Broken Bay.
The Northern Beaches district is usually considered to be the area of the Northern Beaches Statistical Subdivision, comprising fully the local government areas of Manly, Warringah and Pittwater. The 2011 Australian census found the Northern Beaches to be the most White and mono-ethnic district in greater Sydney and surrounds, contrasting with its more-diverse neighbours: the North Shore and the Central Coast. The Northern Beaches is also known for its drinking-culture, "the surfer boy who never grew up" ("surfies") and as the name suggests, its beaches. Without a railway line and with growing congestion, a 'bus culture' has developed in the Northern Beaches, with long bus-routes, such as the L88 and L90 forming part of the local folklore.
