Narrabeen Lakes

Narrabeen Lakes (also referred to as Narrabeen Lagoon) is Sydney's Northern Beaches largest estuary system located just behind the world famous surfing beach at Narrabeen. Narrabeen Lagoon is also a haven for wildlife.

Stretching 55 square kilometres and encompassing a water way area of 2.2 square kilometres, the Lagoon provides countless opportunities to educate students about catchment conservation. Narrabeen Lakes is great place for bush walking, water sports and line fishing which is permitted in the aquatic reserve. Windsurfing, sailing and boating is also permitted.

Access to Narrabeen Lagoon has been improved thanks to the Multi-use Trail that can be used by walkers, cyclists and people of all abilities. Dogs are permitted on a leash. Access the trail from Jamieson Park and Berry Reserve.

Numerous car parks are located around the Lagoon close to picnic areas, playgrounds and boating ramps.
