“30 minutes harbour cruise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

Instead of booking a harbour cruise we just travelled to Manly by Ferry. Worthwhile doing as Manly centre is close and easy to walk to the other side and sit on the beach of in one of the many restaurants and coffee shops. And if you are an Aldi fan, there is just one located exactly at the wharfs entrance

“Amazing views on the manly ferry”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

The manly ferry was such a nice trip, great views and the perfect length of time to take in all of the surrounding views. Great value also, easy to do on a backpackers budget.

“Trip to the edge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

The Manly Ferry whisks you rapidly across the huge Sydney harbor and just as quickly into another realm. You notice the surfboards as soon as you disembark and a short walk to the beach shows them in "full flight". Take a late afternoon ferry and enjoy a lazy twilight dinner, before returning to the spectacular, lit up city skyline.

“Really Nice Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

Ferry to Manly was a good trip. Manly itself was really nice, with some lovely shops and a very nice beach. Also a nice walk round the harbour. Don't forget to have fish & chips by the side of the sea. Somehow they taste so much better that way. Also had my first fresh oyster.

Plenty of room to move about, take photos and see the views. Manly itself is also very lively with plenty to see
