Mackerel Beach, NSW

Join #PalmGirls for a weekend away and discover Pippa's favourite places to eat, drink and stay at Mackerel Beach, a short drive north of Sydney.


Our favourite go-to in this area is a cute seaside shack called 'The Little Black Shack'. It's filled with so much character and is situated on the water for beachside views. Trust us, you won't want to leave!

Bert's Bar and Brasserie is always a favourite when we stay at Sydney's northern beaches. The menu boasts coastal European and has a wine menu to die for. We caught a local water taxi to get there which adds to the fun.

where to drink

Our favourite for drinks would have to be hanging back at The Little Black Shack and watching the sun go down by the seashore. It's so peaceful and with great company, you can't ask for anything better.

It's worth indulging in the amazing drinks menu while at Burt's. There are also many other local cafes and bars that are worth visiting.
