Changes to events and gatherings
Following NSW Health advice all Council events have been postponed or temporarily suspended. Please check the Changes to events and gatherings page for the most up to date information.

We've got a variety of Council and community events and activities on the Northern Beaches to suit everyone. Take a look at the calendar or select a category for upcoming events. 

There's also a range of activities you can do online - join a webinar, watch a live stream, or view a recorded video in our digital library.

Check out other courses & activities at your local Community Centre or our Hello Manly website.

Submit your event

We encourage local not-for-profit community groups to publicise their events here too (conditions apply). Please note: listing here does not mean Council endorses the event or the organiser's products.
