MANLY – QUICK FACTS
A comprehensive seaside resort just 15 minutes from Sydney’s CBD, Manly sits on a beautiful peninsula surrounded on three sides by sparkling Pacific Ocean and spectacular Sydney Harbour. For your added pleasure, the attraction of 18 pristine beaches including one of Australia’s most famous and most beautiful, hidden coves and inlets, breathtaking National Parks, Aboriginal sites and historic landmarks.
Respectful of its history and natural environment, ever enticing for individuals, families and business delegates from here and overseas, Manly is indeed one of Sydney’s most treasured destinations. Open year round, with more than 30 attractions and activities, 100 restaurants and cafes and 200 boutiques and specialty shops, Manly is quite the place to immerse yourself.
So named after the confidence and ‘manly behaviour’ displayed by a group of local Aborigines spied in Manly Cove by Australia’s first Governor, Captain Arthur Phillip in 1788, Manly has been attracting locals and visitors to its breathtaking shores for hundreds of years.
Celebrated as Australia’s first resort destination, see indigenous rock art and engravings along North Head or more modern historical landmarks like Manly’s Quarantine Station first used in the 1830’s. Walk the path of Olympians for 100 years of Manly champions or stroll the famous Corso built in 1855 as a link between Sydney Harbour and the Pacific Ocean.
