The Gallery currently is displaying an exhibition celebrating the iconic Australian band Midnight Oil and it's connection with Sydney's northern beaches. Very well presented and definitely worth a visit.

This is a lovely gallery, and we were lucky enough to see the Northern Beaches HSC Visual Arts exhibition. There is some amazing young talent, with astonishing maturity. Very impressive.

A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches

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
