About Council



Leading the community. Protecting our environment. Creating our future. 

Warringah Council was established in 1906. It administers an area of 149 square km on Sydney’s northern beaches, extending from Manly in the south to Pittwater in the north and inland to the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. 

We own and manage the Glen Street Theatre, Warringah Aquatic Centre, Warringah Recreation Centre, Warringah Creative Space, four local libraries, childcare centres and 26 community centres. We are 51% holders of the Kimbriki Waste and Recycling Centre with Mosman, Pittwater and Manly Councils. 

Our vision is to lead the way to a better future in Warringah. We’re working closely with the community to build strategies that enhance our quality of life, promote sustainable development, and protect our unique and precious bushland environment.
