It’s not just central Sydney that has something to offer visitors – there’s a host of interesting neighbourhoods, paradisiacal beaches and impressive scenery to choose from across the city. In fact, you really do need more than two days here to get the most out of Sydney and its suburbs. So on your final afternoon in Sydney, take one of the most popular day trips, to Manly. The journey on the ferry alone is worth the effort, as you’ll set off from Circular Quay. This means that you’ll benefit from the best vantage point from which to see the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge from the water. Once you arrive at this northern suburb, you’ll find a stretch of beach that’s much less crowded than Bondi, but no less impressive. It’s also one of the city’s most desirable surf spots – in fact, the world’s first surfing contest was held here in 1964. When you’re not surfing the waves or lying under the shade of the trees dotted behind the beach, take a walk along Manly Corso, where you’ll find plenty of places to eat, drink and shop, all to the sound of street performers playing to the crowds. For something a little more active, take the 10km walk from Manly Beach to Spit Bridge, taking in smaller beaches along the way, or follow the Manly Scenic Walkway to Grotto Point Lighthouse to spot aquatic birds and view indigenous rock art. Finally, for the ultimate Manly experience, enjoy fish and chips on the beach before the sun goes down. Image by seanalucysmith from Pixabay; image by pattyjansen from Pixabay
