Situated seven miles north-east of Sydney on the lower Northern Beaches, Manly was named by Captain Arthur Phillip after his encounter with the confident and manly Aboriginal people of the Kay-ye-my clan who lived here. Surrounded on three sides by water, Manly is the perfect destination to enjoy both the habour and the 18 ocean beaches, coves and inlets to swim, sail and surf. But as the locals know, Manly is more than Sydney's premier beach resort. Come by sea or road and take some time to discover its rich heritage and culture, its great shopping, dining and family attractions - it's well worth the trip.
Sydney's seaside resort is full of attractions and exciting activities, including Oceanworld Manly, featuring Australia's largest collection of marine life and the city's largest sharks! In addition, Oceanworld features living coral from the Great Barrier Reef, hand feeding of sharks and giant sting-rays, plus reptile shows and an emphasis on educational tours and talks on the marine environment.
Just behind Oceanworld is the Manly Waterworks where kids (and adults) can enjoy giant slides during the summer months.
Recreational activities include swimming, tennis, golf, beach volleyball, roller blading, scenic and historical walks, parasailing, scuba diving, fishing and enjoying the inner and outer harbour beaches and coves. Manly is the gateway to the scenic beauty of the northern beaches.
