5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2012

This was a very nice ride over to Manly! We went in the morning and it was a bit crowded.

“Great way back from Manly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2012

We took the city bus #180 to the Spit Bridge and walked the 10km (6 mile) Manly Scenic Walkway....just a wonderful way to see the harbour, forest and parts of Sydney. A truely fantastic walk.
Took the ferry back to the city. The ferry is clean, busy, easy to get onto and remember to sit on the left hand side so you can see the Opera House!

“Ferry rides are a must do in Sydney - Manly ferry is one of the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2012

All rides through the harbour are beautiful. Manly ferries go from Manly to Circular Quay. They go past the "heads" which are the entrance to Sydney harbour with glorious cliff faces. They go past Shark Island, the Opera house and pull up next to the Harbour bridge at Circular Quay. If the seas are rough, you could get a bit sea sick as you pass the heads - when the ferry is exposed to the ocean rather than being protected by the harbour. Manly has a harbour and a surf beach. The walk along "the Corso" between the two beaches has a lovely feel. It is mostly a pedestrian walkway. Manly oceanworld is located on the harbourside beach to the left of the wharf as you face manly.

“Best way to see the Bridge, the Harbour and the Opera house”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2012

A must when you are in Sydney as this gives you amazing views of Sydney harbour. Prefer these views to those from the top of the bridge, and don't need to take out a mortgage to do it
