The Manly Ferry, soon to depart Circular Quay.

Manly is a suburb on Sydney's Northern Beaches. With both The Corso and the Manly Ferry to thank, this area has become a resort-style hub for both locals and visitors to Sydney alike. Rain, hail or shine - Manly always shines.

The Corso

Going to the beach; having a kebab for lunch, and an ice cream for dessert go hand in hand here in Manly. Manly Beach is the main beach, and is located right opposite The Corso. There is a smaller beach called Shelly Beach, yet it is still quite a popular beach to its largest neighbour.

A sweet shop in Manly Wharf. Quite popular for some sweet treats for the ferry ride back to the quay.

What Manly is known most for:

Manly Ferry Wharf. That iconic green and yellow Manly Ferry that only takes 30 minutes from Circular Quay.

The ferry wars. In addition to the traditional multi-level Manly Ferry; two other fast ferry services are competing for business, promising to get people to Manly faster and in style. The fast ferry services take 18 minutes to reach Manly from Circular Quay. All ferry services to Manly offer free WiFi, and there are cafes on board. The South Steyne is an old Manly Ferry service.

Manly Beach
