Took the Manly ferry in the evening after a full day using trains and buses to see Bondi beach, coastal walk to Coogee. Using tap on tap off Opal card with the $15.00 daily cap meant it was effectively free. Don't bother with day pass for Ferry or busses just grab one of these cars from Circular Quay information centre... More

Charge that Camera because you wont stop taking pictures of Sydney Harbour. The 20+ minutes over to Manly is a beautiful trip EVEN on a busy summer sunday. A must on any trip to Sydney.

Manly is tourist heaven - and probably best to avoid on the week-end. Too many cheap chain stores. Food and coffee not necessarily the best. But the ferry ride is lovely. And walking along the beach is great.

I live in Sydney. The Manly Ferry is the cheapest and best value tour of Sydney Harbour. The other must-dos are: the Cliff Walk between Bondi Beach and Bronte (or a bit further), the Blue Mountains - Three Sisters and Scenic Railway, dropping in at the Hydro Majestic Hotel, the Bridge Climb and a night-time concert at the Opera House....

I'd like a dollar for every visiting friend and relative I've taken on the iconic Manly Ferry. It never ceases to amaze and the views are always different depending on the seasons and the weather. You can see lots of natural scenery; famous landmarks, like the Opera House and the Bridge; perhaps an interesting ocean going liner or exciting yacht... More

The ferry ride from Circular Quey to Manly is arguably the best value for money way of seeing a sizable part of Sydney harbour for a fraction of the porice of doing this on a harbor cruise. This trip takes in a lot of the magnificent Sydney harbor scenery and is a most enjoyable way to see the great scenery... More
