Sydney, capital of New South Wales and Australia’s largest city, is best known for its harbourfront Sydney Opera House, with a distinctive sail-like design. Massive Darling Harbour and the smaller Circular Quay port are hubs of waterside life, with the arched Harbour Bridge and esteemed Royal Botanic Garden nearby. Sydney Tower’s outdoor platform, the Skywalk, offers 360-degree views of the city and suburbs.

Manly is a stunning beach-side suburb of northern Sydney. Manly has a long-standing reputation as a tourist destination, owing to its attractive setting on the Pacific Ocean and easy accessibility to the city. A short 15 minute ferry ride across the iconic harbour to Circular Quay.
Manly is a world away from the hustle of the business district.
