MANLY At A Glance
Tucked away on a small peninsula surrounded by popular surfing beaches and the spectacular bushlands of North Head, Manly is laid back yet bustling. Manly-siders embrace daytrippers and tourists, sharing with them the natural wonders and world-class shopping and dining that define this beachside suburb.
Simply all things outdoors, from playing in the water to pounding the surrounding walkways. Manly-siders love to play in the sun.
The patch of grass along the water near The Skiff is known as ‘The Office’ – it’s where the locals gather for pre-drinks.
Captain Arthur Phillip observed the indigenous peoples’ “confident and manly behaviour”, hence the suburb’s name, Manly.
