Located 23 kilometres north east of Sydney lies the beachside suburb of Narrabeen. Narrabeen is one of Australia’s iconic surfing and swimming beaches with a population of approximately 6,500. There are four beaches along the Narrabeen coast, North Narrabeen, Narrabeen, South Narrabeen and Collaroy beach. Although Collaroy is a separate suburb, its beach lies along the same section of coast. Narrabeen is the place to for water sports with not only a large surf beach and a lagoon but 12 creeks in the area. Did you know that in January 2005, workmen excavating beside the bus shelter on Ocean Street at Octavia Street found a skeleton, which subsequent investigation revealed to be 4,000-year-old remains of a man? He has become known as Narrabeen Man. To maintain clean beaches and waterways it is up to us the residents of Narrabeen to protect our environment and do what we can to minimise stormwater pollution. Things you can do are keep your gutters and stormwater clear of garden debris and don’t hose lawn clippings into the gutters, sweep them up and dispose of on your garden or in your green bin. You can also save water by installing a water tank that will not only save on your fresh water usage, but it will also save you money. Call Plumber Narrabeen today if you need your gutters cleaned or if you are considering installing a rain water tank.
