(4.1/5 based on 3,000+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: zoos & aquariums, sightseeing, adventure
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.

Where to stay

The range of accommodations in Manly caters to different budgetary needs, and offers a relaxed, cheerful alternative to the busy hotels and bed and breakfasts of cosmopolitan Sydney across the water. Many of the lodgings boast beachfront locations, within ideal walking distance of all the amenities on the Corso strip. With most of the hotels and bed and breakfasts so conveniently located, you'll be perfectly positioned for June's Manly Food and Wine Festival and October's International Jazz Festival, both attended by scores of tourists and locals--just be sure to reserve in advance.
