Manly is one of Australia's most popular tourist destinations. Considered the gateway to Sydney's beautiul Northern Beaches, it offers a wide variety of unique attractions and activities for people of all ages. Manly is just fifteen minutes from Sydney CBD by ferry (but much longer by car) making it the perfect place to visit for a day, or to use as your place to stay whilst in Sydney! Nowhere in the world is quite like Manly. On its own small peninsula, it's bound by Sydney Harbour, the Sydney Harbour National Park, and the Pacific Ocean. All of this natural beauty is complimented by 200 retail stores, 130 cafes, restaurants, bars and eateries, 30 outdoor activities, plus 40 beaches and nature walks!
Manly Art Gallery and Museum, located on Harbourside, on the hill opposite the ferry dock, showcases the history of the area combined with local art and images. Entry is FREE - Tues-Sun 10am-5pm
