New South Wales’ Palm Beach Shines on the Big Screen

August 15, 2019 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

Palm Beach, the iconic shoreline at the northernmost point of Sydney, is at the heart of the new uplifting Australian comedy of the same name, which follows a group of old friends who travel to Sydney’s Northern Beaches to celebrate a milestone birthday.

Directed by Rachel Ward, the movie features a stellar cast of some of Australia’s most-loved actors including Greta Scacchi, Golden Globe-nominated Bryan Brown, Sam Neill, Oscar-nominated Richard E. Grant, Jacqueline McKenzie and Heather Mitchell.

Director and writer Rachel Ward says, “Palm Beach was the obvious place to show the extraordinary beauty of Australia.”

Located on a narrow peninsula with pristine waters of the Hawkesbury River to the north, Pittwater to the west and the Pacific Ocean to the east, nothing encapsulates the beauty and enviable lifestyle of Australia like Palm Beach. And only an hour’s drive from Sydney’s CBD, it is the idyllic getaway from the bustle of the city.

Sydney’s Northern Beaches are renowned for their casual ambience, natural beauty and abundance of world-class dining offerings. This paradise awaits your exploration – spend your days like a local and begin with a leisurely stroll or yoga on the shore, followed by a well-deserved coffee at the famous Palm Beach Boathouse, before heading up to the lighthouse to soak up the panoramic views.

And if you are in need of some retail therapy, you won’t be lost for options in this region. Enjoy the range of local boutiques from bohemian fashion to luxury homewares.

Wrap up your day and savour fine flavours of a seafood platter paired with locally produced wine, before resting your head at one of many accommodation options close by.

See Palm Beach when it hits cinemas on August 8 and book your next weekend getaway to explore the locations filmed in Sydney’s picturesque Palm Beach.
