about Manly

Manly is at the core of the Northern Beaches of Sydney and the real estate market in this area. Named by Captain Arthur Phillips upon first encountering the area and its inhabitants, culture here has always been a key component of its identity and over the course of more than 150 years, it has only grown and thrived.

Manly is an area that manages to cater to numerous demographics, offering proximity to the area’s best beaches, amenities in the form of top tier restaurants and shopping centers, and world class schools all in the immediate area, alongside an idyllic, quiet region for older generations. If your dream home exists on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Manly is the perfect place to start looking.

Amenities in the Manly Neighborhood

Located at the intersection of the ocean, North Head and Sydney Harbour, Manly is only 30 minutes from the CBD by ferry and 13.5 km if driving. This provides for a quick, comfortable commute for those working in the CBD, and yet a quiet, more distant home for those that prefer to live apart from the bustle of the world. Homes in the area are extremely diverse, offering everything from early 20th century cottages and multi-story Federation homes to more modern apartments and condos built in the 1960’s and ‘70s as the area expanded.

For shopping, you can visit the nearby Warringah Mall (the largest in the country) as well as any of the surrounding area’s shopping villages and centers located in convenient proximity.
