The Northern Beaches of Sydney is famous for its beaches with Manly an ever popular destination, only a short harbour ferry ride from Sydney’s Circular Quay.
Manly is a unique seaside suburb with the Pacific Ocean on one side and Sydney Harbour on the other – in between, the Corso stretches through from Manly beach to the Harbour filled with shops, restaurants and bars.
Manly provides the ultimate seaside lifestyle with city proximity (the fast ferry taking 12 minutes and the more leisurely ferry taking 30 minutes) and popular with commuters and families wanting to live by the beach, yet close to the city. For commuters, catching a ferry to the city has to be one of the best ways to travel. Bus transport to all parts of Sydney is also convenient in Manly.
What makes Manly well-known (Manly was how Governor Phillip described the local Aborigines) is the beach and corso and one of the oldest surf clubs in Australia. Manly’s history is also seen in the different homes in the area. From brand new luxury homes and apartments to heritage homes and art deco style and design there is something to suit everyone’s tastes and budgets.
Away from the beach there is are child care facilities, an excellent primary school and two independent high schools close by, and everything you need at your fingertips. Major shopping at Westfield Warringah Mall is also not far away.
