Cross the harbour in one of the ferries to Manly Beach. The trip is great and the destination even better. It has a great boulevard with palm trees, which give it a subtropical look.

Although we grew up in Manly and spent every waking hour either at the beach, nearby Queenscliff lagoon and surrounds, we take the opportunity quite often to go back for a visit. If staying in the city, catch the slow ferry from Circular Quay to...More

Since we visited a few years ago there has been lots of money spent on the area as one gets of the Ferry.

Manly Beach is a must see--very chill community vibe, plenty of people around but not feeling too crowded. Local eats and drinks, and plenty of surf and souvenir shopping just across the street. Looks like a great place to learn how to surf or paddle...More

A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the
day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the
Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent
cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants

It's beautiful anytime on Manly beach and Shelley beach. Weather should be OK we are still having sunny days and mild temperatures. Ride the ferry over from Circular Quay.
