The BOX on the Water is situated in prime position on the newly redeveloped foreshore in Ettalong Beach. Its absolute waterfront location has panoramic views out across Broken Bay to its namesake, Box Head, and over to Sydney’s northern beaches. Architecturally designed with a stylish, contemporary aesthetic, The BOX is just an hour and a half’s drive from central Sydney or twenty five minutes on the passenger ferry from Palm Beach. We took the leisurely ferry ride from Palm Beach which takes 30mins, and is the perfect scenic way to arrive.
Luckily I had made a reservation as this place fills up quickly! Not surprising given it’s location. The restaurant was filled with lots of families and big groups enjoying the gorgeous weather and delicious food. As my Mum and I both share February birthdays, we decided to meet her to enjoy a beautiful birthday lunch. What a way to celebrate!
