NOTICE: Council and the Rural Fire Service are intending to undertake a hazard reduction burn, (conditions permitting) on Saturday 3 December 2022, on the Allambie Heights side of the Park. Parts of the Park Circuit Track and Mountain Bike Trail will be closed as a result.
Manly Warringah War Memorial State Park - known as Manly Dam, is great for picnics by the water, bushland exploring and is popular for mountain biking and water skiing.
Manly Dam has a wonderful diversity of flora and fauna, including a number of threatened species. A recent biodiversity project funded by the Australian Government’s Communities Environment Program, Northern Beaches Council and the Australian Conservation Foundation (ACF), saw local community group Save Manly Dam Catchment Committee undertake an extensive survey of Manly Dam’s flora and fauna. To see the amazing biodiversity that Manly Dam is home to, check out https://manlydambiodiversityproject.org/ Members of the community can be a part of ongoing biodiversity monitoring at Manly Dam by recording sightings at https://inaturalist.ala.org.au/projects/manly-dam-biodiversity-project
Remembrance Day and Anzac Day ceremonies are held at the Cenotaph, in Section One.
Please note: Dogs are not permitted in the picnic areas, the internal road, carparks, or the water at any time.
Except during notified fox baiting periods, dogs on a leash may be walked on the bushland tracks which can be accessed at various external (outside of the picnic area) entry points.
