about Fairlight

Fairlight and Fairlight Beach are located just moments from the Manly Scenic Walkway, just off of Sydney Harbour and close to the CBD. If you follow the walkway for a bit you will reach the Spit Bridge, surrounded by the beauty of some of the country’s most beautiful landscapes. It’s no surprise then that Fairlight has become such a popular destination for residents and new arrivals alike.

Homes in the area include a number of early 20th century cottages and multi-story structures alongside more modern post-war buildings. Originally named Red Hill for the red gravel road that once ran through the area, Fairlight was since renamed after the nearby Fairlight House.
