About Manly

Manly is a thriving and picturesque beachside suburb. It is the ultimate destination to enjoy both the harbour and ocean beaches and has been a popular holiday destination for over 150 years. Today Manly is an ever-evolving and vibrant community, yet it still retains its relaxed and welcoming village atmosphere. The saying "7 miles from Sydney and 1,000 miles from care", expressed by locals, paints a perfect picture of Manly and its beautiful surrounds.

Whether you have an adventurous spirit, a connoisseur's palate, a craving for the ocean or the need to slow down and explore all things quirky and hand-made, Manly offers so many possibilities for the perfect holiday.

There is something on offer for everyone: golden beaches, wining & dining, both vintage and boutique shopping, book and homeware stores, nightlife, art, natural beauty and history: Manly has all of this and much more. And whilst standing on the wharf at Manly you are only a quick ferry ride from the heart of Sydney - an essential journey! Catch the ferry to Circular Quay as the sun goes down, taking in the lights of the city, the Opera House and Harbour Bridge and see Sydney in all of her dazzling splendour.
