Queenscliff Real Estate


History
Queenscliff was named after Queen Victoria. The beachside area was a favourite with holiday goers from the early 1900s to World War I, as it still is today. In the 1900’s people would stay on the Queenscliff Headland (which was then called Curl Curl headland) in beach cottages and holiday shacks.

Located on the northern end of a long stretch of beach that includes Manly Beach, North Steyne and Shelly Beach, Queenscliff is famous amongst the Australian surf culture for its large waves that break out at sea. Dave Jackman, a local resident, made headlines when he dared ride one of these large waves, which gave rise to big wave surfing in Australia.

Queenscliff has a large number of schools within easy reach, including St Kevins Primary School, Pittwater House Collaroy, St Augustines College Brookvale, Manly Village Public School, Harbord Public School, St Paul’s Manly, Freshwater Senior Campus, St John’s the Baptist Primary School and many more. For tertiary education and community colleges there is Northern Sydney Institute of TAFE, International College of Tourism Manly and Manly Warringah Community College.
