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.

Manly is a nice little spot to come with friends, and have a coffee or something to eat. I personally like the scenery and the little walk it has to offer, and the markets here are quite lovely too.

The marina is very congested. There is a lovely walking area that takes you from one end of the marina to the other, lot park area for your picnics. There are restraunts, cafes etc to get food and drink from, and a lot picnis areas near the water. My rating however is going back to time when some workmates had... More

I've visited this area for many years and it outstands me that with all the money invested in the boats in the harbour there seems no comparable value by way of development of the area . It is a pleasant area to spend a hot day particularly if there is a sea breeze blowing and one wants to sit at... More

Dotted with lots of wonderful places to eat, the waterfront is a place to walk for kilometers or just sit and ponder, have a picnic or take a bay cruise.. My favorite eating place is Cooper's Fish & Chips on the Esplanade at Manly.. Friendly, wonderful food & great service.
