Although there is evidence of a midden at the southern end of Dee Why Beach we don’t known a lot of the Aboriginal people who used to lived in the Dee Why area before European occupation.
The indigenous people were known to fish on the then wider and deeper lagoon, where black swans were once seen in large flocks.
Today neither black swans nor Aboriginal owners can be seen in the area, but surfers and beachgoers roaming the bay.
