As a regular visitor to Sydney with family in Manly, The Manly Wharf Hotel is one of our “go to” party starter before jumping on the ferry to town. Always fun with great staff and friendly security

The Wharf bar sits on the pier and is truly a magical location with the water and boats as a bag drop. Great for a casual drink.

Have been to The Wharf bar a few times now and have found the staff attentive and friendly, the food was very good especially the soft shell crab. Great place for a drink on a hot summers day. Will be back again

A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the
day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the
Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent
cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants
