    A weird one I know however I am having a debate with someone and Google has been no help.my friend remembers coming on Camp to the northern beaches and going rollerskating in a roller dome somewhere near Collaroy

    I don't remember there being any roller skating place anywhere on the beaches in the 80's, the closest thing we had was Narrabeen ice skating

    Does anyone remember such a place?

    Roller skating was at manly near the waterworks, probably gone by mid to late 80s.
    I went to birthday parties there. I think called roller disco or similar.

    The ice rink was at narrabeen you’re right.

      I was born at Manly hospital 60 years ago and I grew up on Collaroy Plateau. I can virtually guarantee you that there was never a roller skating rink around Collaroy or Narrabeen.

        I dont remember one in Manly itself, but that could be early dementia.

          There’s certainly no roller dome anywhere on the northern beaches now. I believe that was one of Barrett’s grievances.

            District Park had a roller skate rink in the early sixties, outdoor.
