Settlement of the area dates primarily from the 1880s but significant development occurred from the 1950s. This area is characterised by large blocks, tree lined streets, abundance of parks and quality housing stock.

Elanora Heights sits on the hill above Narrabeen, overlooking Narrabeen Lagoon and the Tasman Sea. The northern side lies next to bushland, which runs to Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, and the south-western side adjoins Garrigal National Park. Native wildlife is common in the area, with bandicoots, blue tongue lizards, possums and many birds being seen. Elanora Heights is home to some of the largest homes in Pittwater and is a popular tourist destination spot.
