What you'll do
Let a longstanding local resident help you discover the real Manly as part of a small group riding on a luxury e-bike. We’ll cycle to Manly Lagoon and then go along the ocean front, before starting the long climb into North Head Sanctuary. I’ll take you through the old army barracks, around the coastal defenses, and to the wonderful Memorial Walk, where you'll have a great view of the city skyline. In late spring, summer and early autumn the afternoon tour is timed to catch the sun setting behind it. For the rest of the year the later tour is designed to avoid the morning chill. You'll also visit the Quarantine Station with a short stop to take in the excellent exhibition and, if you feel the need, enjoy something from the cafe . We’ll then return to Manly harbor front, where you will be free to take a stroll around the town center, perhaps treating yourself, weather and time permitting, to a lovely swim followed by a well-deserved bite to eat, overlooking the ocean or harbor. Given Sydney's mild winter climate this outdoor tour can be enjoyed all year round. Late autumn, winter and early spring can be particularly pleasant, with the air temperature often in the high teens to low twenties centigrade (65-75f) and the harbour glistening under a clear blue sky. An added bonus being that as this is our off season you will be enjoying a 20% discount off the summer price.
I’m originally from England, but have lived in Australia with my wife and two daughters for many years now and am proud to consider myself a local. I love many out door activities, including swimming, snorkelling, cycling and bush walking in and around Manly. Having found my own little bit of paradise I never cease to get tremendous pleasure from sharing it with others.
