This place is really interesting and on top of that is a nature reserve with some outstanding walks and stunning views over the harbour to Sydney. Its a steep hill down to the town centre,ferry and shops.

A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the
day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
a great way to experience Sydney Harbor Bay and the
Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent
cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants

One review says that I can catch a ferry from Sydney or Manly. Where exactly do they leave from, how frequent and what is the cost? Thank you.

Ferries leave from Circular Quay in Sydney to the Manly Pier, you can walk to the Quarantine station from the Manly Wharf but it is a fairly steep 40 minute walk.
