Hotel information

Information hotels and tourism information on Manly Beach can be found at the Go Manly Home Page.

There are a number of hotels in the Manly Beach area. All hotels in the area are within walking distance of The Novotel Manly hotel, restaurants and public transportation.

Manly Lodge provides a range of rooms from $89 to $380 per night.

Manly Sebel provides very nice rooms and situated on one of the best locations on the beach front. The hotel is very short walk to the Novotel hotel and has rooms start at $239 per night.


Sydney has a reasonable public transport system. Petrol in Australia is currently quite cheap, however because we are descendants of convicts most people in Sydney tend to drive their car like they stole it. Hence, public transport is generally more efficient, cheaper and safer than renting a car. The Transport Info page has information on all the Sydney public transport.

The quickest way (30 min.) from Manly Beach to the city is by ferry. The ferry departs from the Manly Wharf every 20 minutes and stops at Circular Quay. The fare is $2.50. Other forms of transport (buses, trains) can be caught from the Circular Quay terminal.
