Collaroy Beach Cafe

Cafe on Collaroy Beach


For a pleasant lunch try "The Deck Restaurant" at the Surf Rock Hotel, Collaroy Beach in Sydney. The food is okay and the view magnificent. The restaurant is built on a deck right on the beach. You can look dine while looking at the ocean, without getting sand on your feet.

Collaroy is a suburb in the local council area of Warringah, on the northern beaches of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. It is approximately 20 kilometres north-north-east of Sydney's central business district. Collaroy's shopping precinct is centred along Pittwater Road, which runs north-south through the suburb. Collaroy has an excellent beach and is popular with backpackers. It has grown vigorously since the mid twentieth century. To the north is the suburb of Narrabeen, to the east is the Tasman Sea, to the south is Dee Why, and to the west is Collaroy Plateau.

Collaroy features a mix of modern detached houses and medium density apartment blocks. Collaroy was named for the collier Collaroy which sank off the coast in 1881 during a storm.
