With its combination of beachside splendour, family attractions and cosmopolitan culture, Manly is a very popular Sydney destination.

A genuine Sydney icon, the Manly Ferry is still the best and most efficient way to get there, the 40 minute-ride taking in the splendour of the Harbour.

On arrival at bustling Manly Wharf, the central shopping precinct is just ahead of you – and you can take your pick of a number of eateries, restaurants and pubs when it comes to lunch or dinner.

Take a stroll down The Corso to find yourself at the ocean-side of town, with its long stretch of golden sand, or walk the harbour-side beach frontage to the West Esplanade. Here, you can visit the Oceanworld Aquarium or take the kids to the splash-tacular Manly Waterworks.

And if you’re looking to get back to nature, you can explore trails through the Sydney Harbour National Park, a series of protected foreshore lands and islands in the area, including beautiful North Head.

Just a ferry-ride away, a visit to Manly is the perfect day out.
