I hosted a corporate event at Q Station and found the whole process and staff very helpful and friendly. great location on North Head with very interesting buildings and history. the only weak point was the ghost tour seemed to miss something.

Walked this place from the visitor centre down the hill. Interesting spot and a lot of history here. Kind of eerie feel in parts (they also do Ghost tours)

We stayed here for a friends birthday, we stayed in one of the 3 bedroom cottages, they were beautifully restored, clean and very comfortable. We stayed in July and the heating in the rooms were excellent. The view in the morning from our accommodation was nothing short of spectacular, then we went down for a fabulous buffet breakfast. To top... More

We were a family group of 11 adults and 3 children who stayed at the station in the accommodation, run by the Accor group, for 3 nights. This is a great venue for families and groups as there are plenty of things to do or it's a nice environment to just relax in with a private beach on site. The... More

We had a last minute booking staying at the Q Station Manly. It was an absolute delight. Lots to do and the waterfront beach was amazing. We had a drink at the pumphouse and some fish and chips - wasn't too expensive, but the atmosphere on a lazy Saturday afternoon was to die for.....enjoy.

Staying in Manly

Neighbourhood Profile
Manly
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 as well, especially along the family-oriented areas like Shelly Beach. An excellent way to experience Manly is to rent a bike and explore the dedicated bike paths and off road trails. The North Head National Park is another must-see. Located on the southern tip of Manly, North Head National Park offers great bushwalks and panoramic views of the city.
