Long Reef is located on the Northern Beaches approx 21km from Sydney's CBD.

In the 19th Century, the Long Reef headland was used for light farming. It was owned by the Salvation Army until 1912 when it became Crown Land administered by Warringah Shire Council. For some years it was a popular camping ground.

There are many submerged shipwrecks off Long Reef Aquatic Reserve. The steamer Duckenfield sank in 1889, as did the steamer Myola off Dee Why Beach in 1919. In the 1970s and 80s, many vessels were purposely sunk off Long Reef Aquatic Reserve to create artificial reefs, including the Manly ferries Dee Why and Bellubera.
