The southern Dee Why Beach (NSW 314b) is more developed than Long Reef. There is a rock pool, seawall, surf club, large car park and large park and picnic area with rows of restaurants and shops behind the southern end (Fig. 4.212). Prior to 1910 Dee Why beach was owned by the Salvation Army and off limits, with wire netting preventing entry. Land was first released at Dee Why in the 1910s, resulting in an influx of weekenders and campers, and the founding of the Dee Why SLSC in 1912. Only after World War II was the area really opened up for residential development.
