Warriewood is located 26 kilometres north of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of Pittwater Council. Warriewood is part of the Northern Beaches region.
Warriewood beach is one of the most picturesque on the peninsula and is ideal for swimming. It is a relatively small beach and headlands on either side mean it is protected from the wind and the surf is usually calmer and less choppy than nearby Mona Vale beach. Old Pittwater Road, which leads to Warriewood beach, climbs up from Narrabeen so that the approach to Warriewood is from the level of the headland. The beach itself is reached by walking down a trail from the top, or driving down to a small car park right next to the beach.
On the southern headland of Warriewood beach there is a walking trail that affords lovely views of the Northern Beaches and leads to North Narrabeen beach.
Warriewood is also home to the 'Blowhole', a popular spot for young daredevils to jump from the headland into the ocean. The blowhole has been featured on Australian soap show Home and Away, which is mostly filmed further north at Palm Beach.
Away from the beach, there is a relatively new and modern cinema complex just off Pittwater Road behind the McDonald's. On the other side of Pittwater Road there is a golf driving range and two themed putt-putt golf 'courses' - caves and shipwreck.
Warriewood features houses with oceans views, and old farms in the valley. In recent years, almost all the market gardens or farms have been replaced by housing estates, such as Sheerwater, to the dismay of many locals who appreciated the rural feel of the western parts of the suburb. There are a number of townhouses in the area as well. It has been stated by local geologists that some newly developed houses/townhouses in the valley are slowly sinking due to them being built on existing swampland.
