Manly and surrounds
Positioned between the city and Sydney’s spectacular Northern Beaches, Lexis Manly students enjoy a temperate coastal climate, the varied work and social opportunities of Australia’s largest city, and a laid-back beachside lifestyle.
The college is a short ferry ride across the iconic harbour from Sydney City – its galleries, museums, nightlife, sports venues and shopping.
From Manly, students can access the historic Hawkesbury River, as well as the beautiful Garigal and Kur-in-gai Chase National Parks. Sydney Harbour National Park is within walking distance of the college, as is Cabbage Tree Bay Aquatic Reserve (a paradise for snorkelling).
Other activities are; kayaking, hang-gliding, paragliding, camping and river boat tours, picnic and bushwalking areas, Aboriginal cultural tours, horse-riding, rock-climbing and some internationally known mountain bike trails.
