Nestled between a tranquil inner-harbour beach on one side and a popular Pacific Ocean surf beach on the other, Manly combines a laid-back attitude with a sophisticated dining scene and stylish Sydney shopping. Take a picturesque 30 minute ferry ride across Sydney Harbour to Manly and get off onto the palm-tree lined Corso. Join the Steyne Promenade where you can walk, roller-blade or cycle from Manly to Freshwater Beach.
Head to Oceanworld Manly with the kids, enjoy the sea breeze at its many casual dining spots, take a ghost tour at Q Station, hire a bike or join a social game of beach volleyball. A beachside suburb, Manly offers many water sports including swimming, surfing, windsurfing, parasailing, snorkelling, kayaking and scuba diving.
