Manly and Northern Beaches

A wonderful half-hour ferry ride across the harbour from Circular Quay will take you to Manly.
MANLY is on a peninsula bounded by the Pacific Ocean and Sydney Harbour and from there it is an hour by bus past Sydney’s Northern Beaches to Palm Beach. Or drive via the Harbour Bridge and the A8. There are marinas, parks and cafes just before the Spit Bridge which crosses Middle Harbour.

FROM MANLY
, travel by bus or take Pittwater Road (A8) and then Barrenjoey Road past Sydney’s picturesque Northern Beaches to PALM BEACH and Barrenjoey Head.

Along the way, COLLAROY BEACH and NEWPORT have ‘surf-side’ shopping, cafes, take-away, playgrounds and picnic areas. AVALON BEACH is a favourite for surfboard riding and the nearby shopping centre is ideal for a coffee shop. Outdoor ocean pools along the northern beaches are at Collaroy, Dee Why, North Narrabeen, Newport and Palm Beach. Exploring beaches off the main road such as Queenscliff, North Curl Curl, Dee Why, Bilgola and Whale Beach can be very rewarding experiences.

There are restaurants, cafes and speciality shops or just stroll along the beach. Walk the 1 km bush track to Barrenjoey Lighthouse on Broken Bay’s eastern headland and take in panoramic views up and down the coastline, over Broken Bay and PITTWATER.
