Favorite thing: The Manly Visitor's Center is located right as you exit the Wharf. This is a definite stop before heading out to explore Manly. They have a large variety of maps, guide books, tour information and brochures about local attraction all for free. They will also help arrange tours as well.
Favorite thing: The Public restrooms in Manly range from the sandy and wet bathrooms by the beach to the clean and pristine ones of restaurants. The bathrooms closest by the beach are usually not as clean and very wet; this from personal experience. I prefer to stop in a pub, grab a beer and have a clean restroom.
Favorite thing: Our last trip to Many in 2010, we decided to meet up with a friend and fellow VTer Doug (Aussiedoug). We enjoyed some drinks, snacks and a nice walk around Manly enjoying the surroundings and catching up on life events.
Just as you get off the ferry in Manly, this information booth is ideally located to give you all the information you need! Just as you step outside the wharf, you will see this booth to your right. They have every brochure you could need for your stay in Manly! Plus, there are people there to answer any questions you have, so make this your first stop when you get to Manly!
Fondest memory: From my balcony where I am staying in Manly for a week, I have a lovely view of the wharf and the beaches and even this nice little tourist information booth. :) Also, Manly is a great place to stay for your trip to Sydney. Accommodation is a bit cheaper here than in Sydney and Sydney is a short 20 minute ferry ride away!
Favorite thing: If you travel by Ferry or JetCat you will be arriving at the Manly Wharf. Here you can find a host of restaurants along with small shops and even grab an ice cream
Favorite thing: Manly beach is popular for surfing. We used to ofen grab a yummy icecream and watch the surfies.
Favorite thing: Lucky I got nice pic of Kookaburra from balcony. Weather was so nice and it was first time to see Kookaburra such a close like this,
