Whether it's surfing, shopping, or just relaxing on the beach, Manly truly has it all.

You can take the train to Circular Quay. As you walk out of the train station at Circular Quay the ferry terminal will be right in front of you, walk to terminal 4 and purchase your ticket to Manly.

This is the best way to go because the ferry ride takes you past two of Sydney's most famous landmarks, The Sydney Harbour Bridge and also the Sydney Opera House.

The whole trip takes around 3/4 hour. When you arrive in Manly we are only a 2 minute walk from the ferry terminal, just walk directly across the road from the ferry terminal onto the pedestrian plaza and walk up the left hand side until you get to The New Brighton Hotel turn left and we are located just around the back of the hotel.

The whole cost of the trip costs around$10.
