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