North Curl Curl is located on the Northern Beaches, 14 kilometres north-east of Sydney’s CBD. It is part of the Warringah local government area. Buses are the primary form of public transport for the suburb however some residents also choose to utilise the scenic Manly ferry to Circular Quay or the fast ferry that travels to Darling Harbour, Pyrmont Bay, Kirribilli and Watsons Bay as well as Circular Quay. The E36 express bus travels from Curl Curl to Manly Wharf in the morning peak hour and connects with ferry services departing for circular quay (and vice versa in the afternoon).
Two thirds of properties in North Curl Curl are detached houses. They comprise a mix of post-World War II brick houses, weatherboard beach houses and modern double storey homes capturing ocean views and often with pools. Apartments make up another 15% and are of a similar age while the remainder are semi-detached houses and duplexes.
