Freshwater is a suburb of northern Sydney. It is located 17 kilometres north-east of the CBD in the local government area of Northern Beaches Council and is part of the Northern Beaches region.
There are awesome views and look outs from up the hills and cliffs that enclose this suburb and it's right between Curl Curl and Manly beaches which are basically walking distance or a short bus ride away.
There are a number of good cafes, restaurants and bars .Transport here is fair to good although there is only direct buses to the city during weekdays. A bus to Manly and catching the ferry is definitely a great senic option. It's about a 30 or 35 min drive to get to the city.
