A visit to Manly by ferry provides you with the quintessential Sydney experience. The thirty minute cruise across Sydney Harbour puts you in a relaxed mood to enjoy this easy-going and cosmopolitan suburb. With the famous surf beach on the Pacific Ocean side and a serene inner harbour beach on the other, Manly has the best of both waterfront worlds and is a popular place to windsurf, parasail and scuba dive.
The palm-tree lined Corso leads you onto the promenade, where you can take a bike ride along the front or relax and enjoy the sea breeze in one of the many cafes and restaurants. Manly's Sydney Harbour National Park, whose North Head overlooks the harbour's entrance, makes for ideal bushwalking with numerous routes linking the beaches with the national park. As well as inviting you to enjoy its natural wonders Manly also offers a tempting year-round calendar of diverse and appealing events.
Getting there really is half the fun - the ferry or JetCat journey from Circular Quay across Sydney Harbour is a must do. Get energised by taking part in activities like bike riding, roller blading, tennis, golf, kayaking and parasailing (during summer). Taste the different cuisines from the range of restaurants in Manly, or people watch over a leisurely coffee. Enjoy picturesque views of native bushland in a coastal setting on the Manly to Spit Bridge scenic walk. Go on the daily tour of the historical Quarantine Station or awaken your sixth sense with the evening ghost tour, both conducted by National Parks and Wildlife Service.
