    Favorite thing:

    Manly is a peninsula, bounded by the sea on three sides. There are 18 beaches, coves and inlets to swim, sail in and enjoy, including Ocean Beach, Shelly Beach, Little Manly and Fairlight.

    Fondest memory:
    The Manly Summer Festival (December to March), The Food and wine festival (the first weekend in June), plus the Manly Jazz Festival - Australia's largest, longest and best known (During the Labour Day long weekend at the start of each October)

  • Take the Manly Ferry from...

    by steve2648 Written Aug 24, 2002

    Favorite thing: Take the Manly Ferry from circular Quay on a sunny day (there are lots) to Manly and walk along the Corso to the beach, stroll to North Queenscliff and return for lunch at one of the sidewalk cafes or resturants overlooking the sea.

    Fondest memory: Driving up to Whale Beach on one of Sydneys Crystal clear mild winter days days, parking the car and walking the cliff top coast road to Palm Beach for lunch. See how the wealthy live in paradise.

    Favorite thing: Have a drink near a beach and go back by ferry to Circular Quay

    Fondest memory: When I think of Sydney this one sunday evening always crosses my mind. Imagine you're sitting on a nice terrace near the Pacific (near Manly beach), a band plays jazzy music, the sun sets down and you drink a nice Chardonnay with friends. Once it gets dark take the ferry to Circular Quay and just enjoy Sydney's skyline. I had a wonderful time!

  • Bondi

    by beachboy Updated Apr 18, 2003

    Favorite thing: Bondi, the most well known Sydney's city beach, is located at the eastern suburb of the city. The beach is roughly 1 km long, enclosed by north and south headlands. Away from the beach there are numerous cafes and restaurants, as well as hostels, hotels, a great variety of shops, and even a small golf course.

    Fondest memory: If you're lucky, you may bump into Hollywood's celebrities sun bathing on the beach.

    Favorite thing: Coogee is a nice little area.
    The beach is lovely.
    There is a good range of people.
    The cafes are great to sit in and chill.
    The Rugby union is well worth a watch.
    I found the people to be great and it's well worth a visit.

    dee why point

    by lostaussie Written May 25, 2003

    Favorite thing: although the beach is quite often plagued by seaweed, if the swell is right, it is a pretty good place for a surf.
    failing talent, it can still be enjoyed at sunrise.
