“Great way to see the harbour”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

We used the ferry to get to and from manly but if you are visiting Sydney it is a great way to view the bridge and Opera House from a unique angle. Plus Manly is beautiful and worth the trip.

We took the ferry from Sydney harbour to Manly beach.You can buy your tickets at the quay side.The service runs half hourly and takes a half hour too.You can sit outside on the ride over and enjoy the spectacular views of the harbour.

“Better remedy for jet lag than sleep!”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Hop aboard the Manly Ferry for a day trip to Manly Harbor and the beach. Sail past the Opera House. Follow the beach crowd to the wonderful walking trail along the ocean. Lots of cafes in town. Cute art deco beach houses along the streets. Take a swimsuit if the weather is warm.

Reviewed November 1, 2012

We took the ferry over to Manly on the first warm/hot day Sydney has seen this year and it was teeming with folks. Great people watching. Grabbed takeaway fish and chips and picnicked . Perfect
