Alternative Parking Options
The best way to visit Manly is by public transport. It’s not only a cheaper alternative to driving but also reduces traffic and pollution. You don’t need to worry about finding a parking space and can take your time to enjoy a swim, coffee or long lunch in one of the local restaurants.
Manly is serviced by a number of buses which travel from Palm Beach, Sydney City, North Sydney and St Leonards, to name a few. Ferries run to Circular Quay and Barangaroo.
Visit Transport NSW for information on bus and ferry timetables.
There are also bicycle racks in front of Manly Wharf, Manly beachfront, Market Lane and other locations throughout Manly.
