Small gallery but with some good works on display. One exhibition all the artists wrote lengthy artists statements which in my OPINION, as an artist, (not saying I'm right) is completely superfluous, it's visual art and if it needs a description it has failed.

I think that even if you are not an art buff, or cannot fully appreciate art, it is still a nice place to visit, simply also because it is so near to Manly Ferry Wharf (just less than 2-3min walk from the wharf). Come and...More

This is a lovely gallery, and we were lucky enough to see the Northern Beaches HSC Visual Arts exhibition. There is some amazing young talent, with astonishing maturity. Very impressive.

A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the
day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the
Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent
cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants
