Its worth coming here, love the little restaurants here and how calm the place is, you can't miss having fish and chips take out and eat by the steps or little tables around. Nice place to chat, unwind relax or just simply sun bathe.

Another great recommended walk. We did the walk in reverse (i.e. suggested route Manley to Spit) and can see why the recommendation is Manley to Spit. We took a bus to Spit which itself has a Harbour charm and set off. The route involves quite...More

Manly is a fantastic spot to visit. There is always plenty happening, especially on the weekend. Whether you are a surf lover or just loke sun bathing, walking the dog or stroll through the markets, have a picnic or lunch in a caffee there is...More

A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the
day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the
Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent
cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants
