Freshwater is a suburb on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, approximately 17km north-east of Sydney CBD and surrounded by other beachside suburbs including Queenscliff, Curl Curl and the famous Manly.

Known as Harbord from 1923 to 2008, Freshwater was once home to the Kuring-gai people and is also known as the ‘Home of Australian Surfing’ due to the first demonstration of surfing in Australia being held at Freshwater Beach in January 1915 by Duke Kahanamoku.
