Dee Why Historical Note:

Dee Why is located 18 kilometres north east of the Sydney central business district, this northern suburb falls under the local government area of Warringah Council and – along with Brookvale is considered to be the main centre of the Northern Beaches region.

While the origin of Dee Why’s neighbouring suburb -- Long Reef’s name is quite obvious – the reason behind Dee Why’s name are unclear. The earliest reference to it are a pencilled in note in surveyors James Meehand’s field book *Marked a Honey Suckle Tree near the beach* that the letters DY were just markers Meehan used to mark many of the places on his maps.

From 1840 the name was recorded as one word Deewhy, but during the 1950’s it was split into two. The term Dee Why was also used to name Dee Why West – which became Cromer in 1969 and Dee Why Heights which since 1951 has been known as Narraweena.
