Beautiful views as the ferry head out through the harbour. The ferry has a cafe and amenities. Get on first to sit outside and get the best views. Only downside 30 minute departures on Sunday.

The Manly Ferry is a must to do when visiting Sydney. The ferries are very comfortable and leave on a regular basis. Manly itself is a great place to visit with Shops, Cafes/Restaurants and beautiful beach not too far from the Ferry Terminal.

The commuter ferry from circular quay ferry terminal to manly is well worth the ticket price. Manly has a nice oceanfront with lots of restaurants, cafes, pubs and shopping opportunities to enjoy on arrival. The walk around to shelly beach along the pedestrian walkway has great views of the coastal scenery and luxury homes. The views of the city skyline,... More

We took the ferry over to Manley. Easy as can be. We had the 7 day pass. A short walk from the ferry to the sand. We just followed everyone else. We rented 2 beach chairs and an umbrella for about $30. Sat on the beach for about 4 hours and soaked up the gorgeous sun. It was snowing back... More
