The Northern Beaches of Sydney usually have picnic areas and facilities for showering and changing.
At Newport Beach there are good surf breaks with some excellent surfing on the northern end (the Peak). There can be a large shore break during big surf days.

Covering Up - Sydney has bright sunny days so wear sun-protective clothing, especially between 10am to 3pm. Find a good SPF30+ sunscreen that is water resistant. Use shade and wear a hat, it all helps to stay looking young, healthy and beautiful as you do.
