Located 11 km (7 mi) across the harbor from Sydney, a holiday in Manly combines quiet neighborhood charm and coastal attractions, all the while placing you within easy access to the big city.
Vaucluse House and Manly Freshwater Parish will appeal to history buffs. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Whale Beach and Bilgola Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to North Narrabeen Beach (in Narrabeen), Mona Vale Beach (in Mona Vale) and Palm Beach (Palm Beach & Barrenjoey Lighthouse). There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Shelly Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Avalon Beach, explore the world behind art at Manly Art Gallery and Museum, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Taronga Zoo.
