Sydney’s northern beaches Harley – Graham 10.03.23

Sydney’s northern beaches Harley tour was actually a Christmas present for Graham. From Scotland, Lyndsay thought it would be a great gift to do when they were in Sydney. It sure was!


Hi Katrina,

Graham had a great time thanks, a very different experience for him! 

Best wishes 


Our Harley rider Pat, picked Graham up from Manly. We emailed a description and map of where to meet. Accordingly, they knew exactly where to meet our Harley rider. Manly has several claims to fame; it was the birthplace of surfing in Australia, the first place to legalise all-day bathing in 1903 and one of the world’s first Surf Life Saving clubs. Manly Beach was the location for the first World Surfing Championships held in 1964.

Freshwater, Curl Curl, Dee Why etc

Firstly, they rode past the famous and iconic Manly Beach. This leads past Queenscliff, which is really northern Manly. Then they rode past Freshwater, Curl Curl, Dee Why and Long Reef. All such beautiful beaches.

Narrabeen Lagoon

They rode via Narrabeen Lagoon (also referred to as Narrabeen Lake) is Sydney’s Northern Beaches largest estuary system located just behind the world famous surfing beach at Narrabeen. It is a haven for wildlife. So far, the Sydney’s northern beaches Harley tour was a lot of fun. Already Graham has seen so many of the beautiful places many visitors or locals to Sydney don’t get to see.

“Home and Away”

Then the tour went via Bilgola Plateau, Clareville, Careel Bay and Avalon before reaching Whale Beach. Between Whale Beach and Palm Beach is the Palm Beach Bible Garden. It has spectacular views over Palm Beach. After a stop for coffee, a stretch and a look at the view, they headed to Palm Beach. It is the home of the long running TV series “Home and Away”. However, the 3 hour tour was just over halfway done, so Syl turned around and they headed back to the Spit Bridge and their car.


Next, they turned right and headed along Mona Vale Road, Terry Hills. Certainly, this meant they would have new scenery and new roads to ride on.

Wakehurst Parkway

They did a big loop as this joins the Wakehurst Parkway. We love the Wakehurst Parkway because the legal speed is faster than most Sydney limits.  

Oxford Falls

After riding along a part of it, they rode up the Parkway to Oxford Falls. The Oxford Falls are two waterfalls on Middle Creek, which flows north to meet Oxford Creek. Meandering Creek flows into Middle Creek. Garigal National Park borders the suburb, to the north. However, time was almost up so it was through the northern suburbs and back to Manly. In conclusion, the Sydney’s northern beaches Harley tour was a lot of fun and a memorable experience, a great Christmas present!
