Manly Ferry

Circular Quay, Wharf 2, Shop 2B Circular Quay - Darling Harbour, Sydney NSW 2000, Australia

From Circular Quay, embark on a jaunt to the charming seaside town of Manly, a 30-minute journey that encompasses gorgeous scenery of both harbor and ocean. The classic green-and-gold ferry service has been in operation since 1855, when it was conceived as a way for well-heeled Sydneysiders to enjoy a day out at the beach in the style of England’s Brighton. There are two stunning beaches in Manly—a surf lover’s ocean beach on one side and a calm, sandy cove on the other—plus a historic pier with fish & chips joints and old-school pubs.
