Talk of the town, gotta visit Manly Beach. So, after having Tim Sum at Market Place (above Paddy Market)(Tim Sum was great by the way), we headed over to the pier. Paid A$55 for the 4 of us (next time bring a kid, then it will only cost A$10 for 4 people on Sunday's ), took the ferry. Ferry ride... More

Took the iconic Manly ferry from Circual Quay, amazing view of the city. Manly is a fantastic laid back place, fab beach, great fish & chips, not to be missed.

Take the ferry from circular quay and visit Manly if you are in Sydney. The small corso is pleasant and the beach beautiful but the ferry ride over and the whole day is spectacular. Nice aquarium also.

We did a morning trip which extended well into the afternoon, visiting the old army training camp on the headland (caught the bus there) and then back via a lovely beach and lunch stop south of Manly. After that treat, the beach and town were just too 'busy'. Many thanks to the most helpful lady in the Tourist cabin by... More

I think it is worthwhile going here just for the ferry ride! the walk is lovely too along the ocean side. We did get ripped off with our fish and chips though, $50 for four of us and the food was ordinary. Much better value at Watson's Bay - much yummier and only $32 for seriously good fish and chips.

Well, in my opinion, Manly beach is the best one in and around Sydney. The hype about Bondi beach being the best beach in Sydney are, in our opinion, without merit. We went to Manly in January, the day after a visit to Bondi, and we were really happy that we went there. Of course, there were lots of people... More

Definitely go if you love beaches and want to see one of the truly beautiful places in Sydney - Manly is stunning, especially at twilight.

What a cosmopolitan place - the ferry ride is good then it gets better with a lovely sandy beach. Finish off the day with lots of shops and cafes.
