One of Sydney's favourite beachside suburbs is just a 30-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay. The trip on the Manly Ferry is spectacular and once in Manly, there is so much to do. Take a surf lesson, go for a dip, hire a bike and ride along the beachfront or stroll around to beautiful Shelly Beach and go for a snorkel. Then there are the many restaurants and bars in which to sit back and relax by the seaside.
