Located in Sydney's Northern Beaches region, Collaroy is a beachside suburb with a tight-knit feel. Residents love the friendly neighbors, safe community, and being walking distance to the beach. The beach itself boasts good swimming and manageable waves for newer surfers, along with a rockpool and children's play area.

You'll find a good mix of home styles  here, ranging from quite large single-family houses on tree-lined streets to beach cottages to apartment blocks and condos along the water. Note that parking can be difficult nearer the beach.

The main thoroughfare through town, Pittwater Road, offers a number of cafes, restaurants, shops, and services.  And you can still catch a movie at the landmark Collaroy Cinema, which was built in 1938. For recreation -- besides the beach -- there is golfing at the Long Reef Golf Club, tennis at the Collaroy Tennis Club, and bush walks. Older residents frequent the Collaroy Beach Club for its poker, dancing, and live music. 

Collaroy is bordered on the north by Narrabeen, on the east and south by the Tasman Sea, and on the west by Dee Why, Cromer, and Collaroy Plateau.
