A true village with the best qualities of a small town where people and shopkeepers have longtime face recognition and friendly relationships. Despite the influx of population with housing developments in nearby suburbs, Manly has kept its village feel and remained a comfortable place for walking, sightseeing, sailing, informal dining and shopping. The weekend Manly markets with fresh regional produce... More

Manly is not so much a beach, rather a seaside village with a very attractive boat harbour. The Esplanade is a lovely area with lots of walking paths which is a mecca for walkers and dog owners alike. The Jan Power's Farmers markets held each 1st and 3rd Saturday (6am - 12 noon) is very popular and the Esplanade can... More

Manly hotel door staff have no respect for there patrons. As a new member of the manly community I will go above and beyond to make this a better establishment for the future. Let's say good buy to those eg. Security, bouncers. And make this a more friendly layedback environment for everyone

Manly is a VERY quiet town. We were there on a Tuesday evening right after Easter and hardly saw a soul. Nothing was open until 5:30pm, which is an odd thing for a couple of hungry Americans... But the town is cute and clean. The beach area we saw wasn't super "beachy"- but we didn't go past the area of... More

Ok I have lived here for thirty plus years so yes I'm very biased. Far enough away from the city with its village atmosphere and friendly residents, I wouldn't live anywhere else. Close to major shopping centre Westfield Carindale and easy access to Gateway motorway for access to airport and Gold and Sunshine Coasts. Close to Cleveland for vehicle access... More

Worth a visit but take the time to relax and sit and enjoy your surroundings.There are little hidden treasures off the main track so stroll along till you find them.Lunch was al fresco so it was just average but hit the spot as we were hungry.

Visited here on a public holiday. Very lively community. Nice stroll with many little eateries bars and shops. Maybe 2 hours spent but really a nice day out if you are exploring the area.

This is a little piece of Brisbane that is just that little bit different. Fabulous views over the bay and a charm all of its own. This has always been one of our favourites when we just want to go somewhere near the bay and have a quiet drink or bite to eat. It is also worth exploring the marina... More

Although not much in the way of beach, sitting at Manly Harbour provides that ocean view that never fails to make me smile. Check out the boats, watch the people walk by, and enjoy a coffee or wine.
