Ferry trip to Manly

A great trip on the ferry to Manly, so much better than the road trip, relaxing and intereting, a lovely long ride and a great view of the Sydney waterways

An experience for the whole family to enjoy. Sit back and relax and enjoy all that the harbour has to offer, great views on the water of the iconic Sydney Harbour bridge and the beautiful Opera house. A fun, family trip to Taronga Zoo was a delight for the kids. We used this service many times while in Sydney and... More

Such a nice way to see the harbour and visit Manley. Great sun sets, so worth travelling at dust. But a one day travel card, as the ferries are free.

Please, do not miss the Manly Ferry. This is the number one thing to do in Sydney. The Ferry ride to Manly will give you spectacular views of the Opera House. If you're leaving during day and returning during night, then you'll get nice night views of the Opera House as well. In Manly awaits the nicest beach in Sydney...... More

Traveling on the Manly Ferry give one a great overview of Sydney's great harbour and at the same time is a grand ride especially if there is a Pacific swell coming through the heads. A definite must for anyone to really get the flavour of Sydney Harbour.

Just do it! The best experience you will have while in Sydney. I live here! You will see the best views of Sydney harbour. The ferry is about a 30 minute trip from Circular Quay where the Ferries depart, to Manly. Arguably one of the best beaches in Sydney too. Lots of food outlets at Manly. Toilets on board Ferry....

Nothing speaks of old school Sydney like the Manly ferry.. Think James Reyne.. Have used this so many times;never miss a trip across the Harbour. Please don't modernise.

The trip over to Manly on the ferry is well worthwhile, with wonderful sights as you travel along with great photo chances. A short walk along the Corso brings you to Manly Beach a great surfing beach or paddle and walk along the sands, Sundays can get a bit crowed on the ferry. Visitors can travel around Sydney by public... More

Great fun and good value. We had a lovely day out in Manly. The ferries are a great way to travel. Have an icebreaker from the gelato stand in the ferry hall. Yummy

For an awesome view of the Circular Quay sit facing the quay even though you will travel in reverse direction but its worth for the view of the harbour.
