Manly

— 1 day
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.
Start off your visit on the 2nd (Fri): admire nature's wide array of creatures at Taronga Zoo, kick back and relax at Shelly Beach, and then get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Manly Sea Life Sanctuary.

Plan my Manly trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Sydney to Manly is an approximately 1-hour car ride. You can also ride a ferry; or take a bus. In April, plan for daily highs up to 26°C, and evening lows to 17°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Fri) to allow time to travel to Nulkaba.

Greater Sydney travel guide

Hiking Trails · Zoos · Beaches
Sandy beaches, rolling hills, azure rivers, and charming settlements are the hallmarks of Greater Sydney. Coastal suburbs and picturesque harbors are common. Areas such as Manly live up to the Australian stereotype of the laid-back, prosperous, beach-going community.

Cessnock travel guide

4.1
Located adjacent to Australia’s oldest wine region, Cessnock takes a more down-to-earth approach than the tourist haven of Lower Hunter. The humble environs and people of Cessnock may prove a nice alternative to staying in the region's epicenter. And don't worry, you won't miss a beat: basing your holiday in Cessnock gives you more affordable options with plenty of amenities, plus easy access to all of the wine-tasting and guided tours that places like Pokolbin offer. Note that the only real way of accessing Lower Hunter is by car, but car rentals within Cessnock are available. Be sure to take advantage of the great selection of budget-friendly restaurants located in the center.
