Dee Why Real Estate

Dee Why Beach Real estate

History
Dee Why is located in the heart of the Northern Beaches of Sydney and features a beautiful surf beach that runs for about 1.2km along the eastern border. James Meehan, a convict surveyor, gave Dee Why its name in 1814 for unknown reasons. In the early 1900’s Dee Why was far different from how it is today. It was a slow paced country town where Sydney residents would visit for a weekend beach swim or for a holiday on their annual leave.

In 1961, Midget Farrelly started Australia’s first ever boardriding club in Dee Why. Midget was President to the club and named it Dee Why Surfing Fraternity.

Restaurants & Cafes
Dee Why is renowned on the beaches for boasting a wide range of excellent restaurants and café’s to choose from. Warringah council invested money in giving the beachfront a fresh update to the beachfront strip which is now home to many popular restaurants including Stella Blue, Sandbar, Giovanni’s, Girdler’s Grind, Deck 23 and Lets Meat Korean BBQ. Dee Why RSL, which has recently undergone massive renovations, is also extremely popular and has been awarded as ‘Club of the Year’ for three years running.
