Formerly part of the Warringah local government area, the Pittwater Council and
region is located at the far end of the northern beaches of Sydney, an area that
looks out across the Tasman Sea, and named after the body of water known as
Pittwater which extends past Barrenjoey Head into Broken Bay.
Pittwater diverse and beautiful landforms range from rainforest gullies to steep
boulder strewn slopes, rocky outcrops and escarpments. The region is also very
fortunate to have retained its bushland areas and remnant native vegetation,
providing home to a variety of native birds, marsupials, reptiles, insects and
other fauna now lost from most of Sydneys suburban areas. With ocean beaches and
sand dunes, heath and grassy headlands, woodland and tall forests, wetlands,
creeks and estuaries, the Pittwater region has them all.
