A trip to Sydney wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Manly via the ferry across Circular Quay.
The vibe is completely different from Sydney, despite being so close and easily accessible. It’s like being away for the weekend, while still being in the city. The main beach is a short walk from the ferry terminal through the corso, which is overflowing the everything from unique boutiques, gift shops, bars and open air restaurants.
The iconic ferry that takes people between Manly and Circular Quay offers some of the best views of the harbour, including the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House, and is just something that can’t be missed if you’re visiting the city. Take a short day trip around to the northern beaches of Sydney for a late lunch and relaxing afternoon at the beach.
The Manly fast ferry runs every 10 – 20 minutes, 7 days a week, so there’s never much of a wait when you get to the ferry terminal! Check out their timetable HERE to organize your day trip.
A return adult ticket costs $18.20AUD (or $9.10AUD for a one way ticket), which can be purchased online or from Circular Quay (Wharf 2 & 6) or Manly Wharf (Wharf 2 & 3).
