“Great view of Sydney!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

After taking the ferry to Manly we very much enjoyed the walk to North Head. At the end of the walk there are breathtaking panoramic views of downtown and surrounding Sydney and the harbour. The exercise was good for us but it would have been helpful if the buses had run to North Head more than every 2 hours so we wouldn't have had to walk all the way back to the ferry.

“45min - 1 hour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012 via mobile

This is hike on a trail from Spit bridge to Manly Corso (and return if you have time) you will see amazing ocean views, beautiful homes, bush and maybe some Aboriginal rock carvings I you keep a look out. Great day to spend with your lunch in your backpack... And take an hour or two exploring the inner harbour.

“relaxing in the middle of the City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

nice short ferry ride a way great to be out of town whilst in town. Manly on the noprthern tip of Sydney Harbuor is defently a trip worth. It seems that once arrvied the husstel from the City is left behind and you feel instantly relaxed.

“Rent a bicycle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

It is very easy to cycle around Manly on the hill and on the scenic walkway along the beach. Stop anytime: shop, restaurants, bars, or just watch people. enjoy.

“Great way to see Sydney harbour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

This great walk takes you from Manly to The Spit, mostly with fantastic views of the north reaches of Sydney Harbour, North Harbour and Middle Harbour. You get to see a diversity of flora, the occasional fauna, and a great variety of birds. There's a bridge through a rainforest-like environment, across parks, with quick detours to some great harbour beaches. In most places the walk is easy going, so makes for a leisurely walk on a sunny day. Although there are lots of places in shade, it can become very hot in summer, so suggest do this walk in spring or autumn, or in early morning in summer. Catch the bus back to Manly from The Spit.
