Manly

4.2
Located 11 km (7 mi) across the harbor from Sydney, a holiday in Manly combines quiet neighborhood charm and coastal attractions, all the while placing you within easy access to the big city. Get to and from Sydney by commuter rail and a scenic ferry trip (cyclists can take bicycles on board the ferry at no extra charge). Walkers will find Manly's tourist attractions easily reachable on foot, thanks to its compact size. A large array of shopping and dining experiences cluster along The Corso, and this main strip also connects to all of the major marine activities on Manly's numerous beaches, including kayaking, surfing, and scuba diving. Manly is in Greater Sydney. Take a look at our Australia trip itinerary planning tool to refine the details of your trip to Manly.
