Manly, Australia

Fun in the Sun

Manly, Australia, located 33 degrees 47minutes South, 151 degrees 17 minutes East is the jewel of the north shore. It offers both harbor and ocean beaches, and all the trappings of a full scale holiday resort with a great sense of community, and is a short 30 minute ferry ride from downtown Sydney. 

If you're looking for a relaxing, "fun in the sun" place to sit for a while, this is it. Surfing, sailing, walking or just laying on the beach, are some of the local pastimes. 

 The ideal climate, ranging from 18-33 degrees Celsius in both summer and winter, makes outdoor activities such as bar-b-queing a breeze and local food quality is high with prices reasonable.

Beautiful Sydney Harbor, Australia

Beautiful Sydney Harbor

Manly has many "walkabouts" or walking tours ranging from 30 minutes to hours, depending on your walking speed. These tours feature stunning vistas of the famous Sydney Harbor. We walked a two hour trek to North Point, the northern boundary for entry into the harbor. Paved trails with modest inclines made this 4 mile journey an easy morning hike.

A must see is the Royal Australian Artillery National Museum, with many artifacts and displays detailing Australia’s involvement in World War II. On another day, hiking out to the Spit Bridge was equally rewarding.


Rentals are plentiful, both furnished and unfurnished, however, most agencies want a six month lease. A fully furnished one bedroom apartment, close to Queenscliff Beach is $1,000 AUD a month.

A two bedroom spacious unit, with a large balcony and magnificent million dollar harbor views goes for $2,500 AUD.

So, if you're looking for "the good life" at reasonable prices, Manly, Australia is worth a look.

Clean, accessible, and tourist friendly, Manly rises to the top of our list of places for a return visit.
