    If you have absolutely nowhere to go - go here for a cheap night indoor. This hostel was terrible. You couldn't even see the floor in the tiny 6 dorm room. Poor service. Drunk people and it smelled marijuana.More

    Manly
    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
