Manly, QLD

With immediate access to Moreton Bay, Manly is a boat lover’s dream. The centerpiece of Manly is Manly Harbour, a marina crowded full with magnificent yachts and quality eateries.


Manly is renowned for its relaxed yet sophisticated nautical atmosphere. And there is so much to do – from seaside family picnics to bike riding, from water sports to markets, it is all here. To get a real taste of the seaside location, why not take a day sailing cruise out on Moreton Bay, or try boom-netting off the back of a boat with Manly Eco Cruises.

About 17 kilometres from the Brisbane Central Business District, Manly is perfect for families. There are good bike and walkways, a community swimming pool and a seawater wading pool. In the summer, outdoor activities such as canoeing and rollerblading are also very popular.

Spend time in this wonderful waterfront precinct with its inspired street scaping and you will want to stay forever.
