Neighbourhood: Manly
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 as well, especially along the family-oriented areas like Shelly Beach. An excellent way to experience Manly is to rent a bike and explore the dedicated bike paths and off road trails. The North Head National Park is another must-see. Located on the southern tip of Manly, North Head National Park offers great bushwalks and panoramic views of the city.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Located directly out front of the Manly Ferry Terminal, this is a small information centre. They staff are friendly and ready to assist visitors to the area. There are plenty of maps available, as well as some items to purchase.

Came by ferry with my own bicycle and was looking around for places I could visit. The staff at the visitor center approached to help me and suggested some realistic places to ride to and take walks.

Visited the North Head, Manly beach (extremely crowded), Freshwater beach, Curl Curl beach, Dee Why beach then Narrabeen on the bike. The Manly-North Head-Manly stretch was the toughest ride, plenty of everlasting inclines I guess ranging around 4-8% incline but nonetheless challenging.

There are some bike and non bike trails within the North Head. Recommend a wider than 23 tyres for that track.

My favourite bit was from Dee Why to Narrabeen, the shared bike/foot path was mostly well paved and easy to navigate with clear road signs, even being able to ride through the Berry Reserve and Narrabeen lagoon which was much fun. This bike path a roadie with slicks can take.

Hi WhyDontWe Thank you for review and for sharing your valuable opinion riding bicycles around the Northern Beaches. We are thrilled to be able to give you useful information so you could best enjoy your time on the wild side, north of Sydney. Manly is the gateway to the Northern Beaches which is a hidden gem, full of natural beauties to explore, so it is great you have been able to see a few highlights and had such a lovely experience. Manly does get very busy over Summer as it is high season and riding bikes down to Shelly Beach on the weekends is not possible due to congestion. We're always here to help! Please visit us again next time you are in Manly - we are located just outside the Ferry Terminal, and can offer fresh new ideas and recommend local places that will fit your vacation dreams! We love Manly - Come back soon!! Thanks Manly Visitors Information Centre

Staff was extremely friendly and willing to provide information from transportation to attractions in Manly. Don't forget to cut a coupon from guide book to enjoy 'buy 1 get 1 free' from Ben & Jerry's on ice cream.

Thanks ladies.
