The Famous Manly Corso

The Manly Corso was laid out in 1854-55 by Henry Gilbert Smith, originally built as a boardwalk for early tourists across Manly’s sand spit between the harbour pier and the beach.

The Corso remains the focal point of Manly as a part-pedestrian mall lined with popular surf shops, pubs, cafes, galleries, and street entertainment. Most of this street has no vehicular traffic making it a broad pedestrian precinct for shoppers and visitors and the quickest route from the Manly Ferry to Manly Beach.

On the Corso it’s common to see children splashing around a series of fountains that have been installed in the footpath. Every half minute or so the water gently rises up a half metre and then dies down again.

Exploring the Corso you will find an excellent collection of restaurants, pubs, cafes and eateries from breakfast to late at night.

Whether you’re being inspired by the latest Australian designers or discovering hidden treasures in the Manly Markets or searching the endless supply of beach toys for sale along Manly’s famous Corso, you’ll wish you packed light because Manly is as good for the soul as it is for the back pocket.
