If you are looking for less city life, a aud 15 ferry boat from the sydney harbor will take u to Manly beach. We started off pretty late so by the time we start walking along manly beach to the scenic walk, it was almost 3. But definitely nice chiq and modern apartments and houses along. Beaches are just stunning.... More

Beautiful and tranquil. Overlooking Sydney downtown from the north yet combined with nature. Love the rock formations. Benches along the way to rest and take photos.

We walked from Manly beach up to Fairfax lookout and back in about 1.5 hours. There are a number of places to stop and look out over the ocean and beaches. We spent most of the day on the beach, headed out for a walk and returned to Manly to enjoy dinner before returning on the ferry. Great all day... More

I had hoped for more, but it is rather short - the view over the bay is nice however. The restaurants at the beginning (in Manly at the ferry port) are quite unique.

We took the scenic walkway in Manly and loved it. After every turn we found one great view after the other. There are signs all along the walkway so we never felt lost, just enjoyed the beatiful weather and the amazing views.

What a delightful walk along a path overlooking the sea. On a sunny day a stroll with the family and lovely light lunch and glass of good wine. Isn't this what dreams are made of?

Must travel to Manly by ferri and have lunch in any restaurant along the beach. It is a peaceful place with a lovely breeze.

Beautiful pine trees and wide paved walkway to Shelly Beach. Bathrooms and food available along the way. Lots of chafes and coffee shops. The surfers and swimmers were enjoying good waves; it was windy when we were there. Many families on the beach. Many photo opportunities.

Lovely seaside location, very clean and the prices of food and drinks were much less than in Sydney.Well worth a 1/2 day visit,though if you are not going on the beach , very litle else to do.
