Dee Why

Dee Why is a stone throw north of Manly and is separated by the suburbs of Queenscliffe, Harbord and  Curl Curl. Dee Why is not on a train line or public ferry route, but there are plenty of buses and the road network is easy to navigate.

Dee Why is located 18 kilometres north-east of the Sydney central business district and is the administrative centre of the local government area of Warringah Council, and along with Brookvale is considered to be the main centre of the Northern Beaches region.

The main commercial area in Dee Why is centred on either side of Pittwater Road, the main arterial road on the Northern Beaches, and continues down the streets leading to the beach as well as upwards along Fisher Road. This area is characterised by 1960s shop-top, two and three storey buildings and later, four to ten storey developments. The most significant of these later buildings is Dee Why Grand in the south of the main commercial area. Completed in mid 2010, it includes a shopping arcade and the new Dee Why Hotel, as well as two 10 storey residential towers and a significant amount of commercial office space. Also on Pittwater Road is the Warringah Council Chambers and the Dee Why branch of Warringah Library, one of four networked branches of the Library.

The Strand, running along the southern Dee Why beach front, is a major commercial area, and features two to four storey buildings with cafes, restaurants and bars overlooking the beach.

There is also a set of eight mainly single storey shops at the corner of South Creek Road and Pittwater in the northern part of Dee Why, next to the lagoon, as well as a few corner stores scattered in the more suburban areas.
