Collaroy is a suburb in northern Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Collaroy is located 22 kilometres north-east of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of Warringah Council and part of the Northern Beaches region. Collaroy Plateau is a locality in the western part of the suburb. To the north is the suburb of Narrabeen, to the east is the Tasman Sea, to the south is Dee Why, and to the west is Cromer. Collaroy is well known for its excellent surf beach which joins with Narrabeen Beach at Wetherill Street. Essentially one continuous 3.4km surf beach, the distinct suburb names are due to Collaroy beach being in the Warringah Shire local government area, and Narrabeen beach being in the Pittwater local government area. Although popular with tourists, Collaroy/Narrabeen Beach is mainly frequented by residents and local people. The great length of the beach results in absence of crowding. Four Surf Lifesaving Clubs provide swimming supervision/surf rescue services (North Narrabeen SLC, Narrabeen SLC, South Narrabeen SLC, and Collaroy SLC). Public car parks are located at Narrabeen and Collaroy.

Collaroy is home to one of the Salvation Army's largest conference and outdoor education centers in the area. The center caters for many conferences of the Salvation Army as well as other churches, schools, community groups and businesses. It can cater for up to 440 people and has fully catered camp programs. Collaroy is an Aboriginal word meaning long reeds. Originally, this area was part of Narrabeen but was renamed for the collier Collaroy which ran aground on the beach in 1881 during a storm. It was refloated and later wrecked on the Californian coast in 1889. Collaroy has developed vigorously since the mid twentieth century.
