About Manly

Nestled between a tranquil inner-harbour beach on one side and a popular Pacific Ocean surf beach on the other, Manly combines a laid-back attitude with a sophisticated dining scene and stylish shopping.

The palm-tree lined Corso leads you onto the Steyne promenade, where you can walk, roller-blade or cycle from Manly Beach to Freshwater Beach. Hire a bike, or head to Manly SEALIFE Sanctuary with the kids, enjoy casual dining and a ghost tour at Q Station or join a social game of beach volleyball on a Sunday afternoon.


The Manly Scenic Walkway offers the visitor access to some of Sydney Harbour's most stunning scenery and bushland. The track meanders around the harbour foreshore from The Spit Bridge via Dobroyd Head to Manly.

The track is 10 kilometres in length and takes the average walker about three to four hours to complete. There are six major entry and exit points to the walkway. These are located at The Spit Bridge, Clontarf Reserve, Cutler Road Lookout, Tania Park (Crater Cove and Arabanoo Lookouts), Wellings Reserve and Manly Wharf.

Maps are available from the Manly Visitor Information Centre located next to Manly Wharf, and the National Parks Office. Tours are available for groups for a minimum of 25 people and are guided by National Parks and Wildlife Service, bookings for this service are essential. For more information:
