Arriving at Manly

Manly Sydney beach-side suburb Manly Sydney beach-side suburb is one of my favourite places in Australia. Most visitors arrive by ferry from Circular Quay, a 30 minute journey which showcases the best harbour in the world.

Relaxing on the Corso

I think Manly is far nicer than Bondi, the world famous beach on the south side of the harbour.

Beautiful Manly Sydney beach-side suburb

Old friend Paul Slaughter

Manly Sydney beach-side suburb We have enjoyed many Sunday afternoons drinking cold beer and watching the young girls pass by. Both of us fully realise at our age we are totally invisible to them.  Ah! I’m so happy to be living in Pattaya. 🙂

Fish & chips at Manly beach
