Your guide to Manly

All About Manly

Though within sight of Sydney, Manly is quite the opposite of the metropolitan hub on the other side of the harbour. Located on the northern side of Sydney, this beach town offers a slice of paradise in the form of surf shops, luxury fashion boutiques, and local bars where you can grab a refreshing drink. Visitors can catch a wave 15 minutes away at the world-famous Manly Beach or grab a snorkel mask or scuba tank and head under the blue water. Just 15 minutes in the other direction is the Manly Lagoon Reserve, a perfect spot to birdwatch or get in some exercise at the outdoor fitness area and skate park.

The city is filled with beautiful sights — visitors can watch the beauty in action during sunset from Sydney Harbour National Park, and even sneak a peek at the iconic Sydney Opera House too.


How do I get around Manly?

Manly is easily accessible from Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport (SYD), just 40 minutes away by car. If arriving via water, hop on a ferry at Circular Quay, a nearby harbor in Sydney, and make sure to take in the gorgeous views of Sydney Harbor on your journey. There are also water taxis, buses, and a shuttle available from the Sydney Airport that take about 40 minutes each way. When you get settled into your Manly holiday apartment, you’ll find the city and the other northern beaches are very pedestrian-friendly. If you want to visit any of the neighbouring towns, there’s an extensive bus service that operates throughout the Northern Beach, with routes that all come together at Manly Wharf.


When is the best time to stay in a holiday rental in Manly?

Manly is famous for its beaches, which are at their finest in the summer, but the temperature never drops too far — making it a spectacular year-round destination. In May the Gai-mariagal Festival offers visitors a chance to learn about the history of the First Nations People who have long inhabited the island. There’s also the Northern Beaches Music Festival taking place at the same time, which hosts three days of international music, food, and vendors. Dog lovers will find heaven in August during the Dog’s Day Out event, packed to the brim with workshops, competitions, and vendors selling everything you would want to spoil your pooch. And don't count out September and October as this is when the city is filled with arts and jazz festivals to bring a bit of joy to your eyes and ears.


What are the top things to do in Manly?

Manly Beach

According to local legend, Manly Beach is the birthplace of Australian surfing. Home to the first ever surfing competition in 1964, the beach is not only beautiful and soft to walk on, but a piece of history as well. Professional surfers from around the world come to shred the waves of Sydney Harbour, and rookies often follow suit, taking lessons in the same swells as the pros.

Northern Beaches Coast Walk

Starting in Manly and stretching 36 kilometres to Palm Beach, this coastal walking trail boasts a ton of beautiful vantage points. The trails are also wheelchair-accessible and easy to navigate. If you come during the winter, you may even be able to spot some whales along the way.

Manly Art Gallery & Museum

Tucked away at the western edge of Manly Cove Beach, the gallery features an extensive collection of ceramics alongside over 1,000 Australian artworks, and the museum showcases local history and 20th century beach culture, including a collection of longboards and swimwear. The site is also home to photographs, letters, and pieces from a local artist who helped to establish the gallery.
