ABOUT TOWN IN MANLY

Need to know where to start the day with a coffee and acai bowl, which steak sandwich or poké bowl is good for lunch and the best stop for an ice-cold schooner of beer or crisp glass of wine in the arvo is? Maybe you’re looking for some lush accommodation for the week? Along with our event partners, we’ve got you covered. Here’s a local’s guide to the best spots for the week 16 – 24 March 2019.

BY FERRY 

The iconic Sydney to Manly ferry ride is a must! You can be staying in the heart of Sydney city and be transported in style to Manly Beach within a little over 30 minutes. You can take the Sydney Ferry using an Opal Card or the Fast Ferry for $17 return.

BY BUS

There are a LOT of busses that come in and out of Manly from the Sydney CBD, North Sydney, Chatswood and the rest of the Northern Beaches, you can even grab one and head up to Palm Beach for the day (on the 199 route). Plan your trip here.

HOP, SKIP’N’JUMP SHUTTLE 

Manly and the local Northern Beaches Council run a free courtesy bus within the local area, so if you’re staying nearby but a little too far to walk check out if the bus runs near you to save yourself parking hassles. Check out the timetable and local route here.

There are a number of accommodation options in and around Manly Beach. They range from backpackers, motels, and hotels. We recommend the following locations for your stay in Manly during the 2018 Vissla Sydney Surf Pro. 

Novotel Sydney Manly Pacific Hotel

Check the surf at dawn and run home between activities. The Novotel Sydney Manly Pacific Hotel will allow you to indulge yourself in 4-star oceanside comfort right on the beach, opposite the event. Awake to an ocean sunrise and a breath of sea air in your light, contemporary room. A surf or a waterfront jog and a Pacific-backdrop breakfast with eggs made to order and barista coffee get your day off to a bright start at Novotel. 

Q Station

Relax. Unwind. Rejuvenate:  Want to feel like you are a million miles from anywhere when in fact you are just a 30 minute ferry ride from the Sydney CBD. Leave the busy pace of city living behind and enjoy the beauty and serenity of Sydney Harbour and the National Park from the privacy of heritage listed accommodation rooms, with most of the modern conveniences. Immerse yourself in a historical past while enjoying the comfort and convenience of contemporary facilities and services.

Q Station’s accommodation options all offer privacy, contemporary comfort and a truly unique setting to facilitate your complete experience of relaxation and rejuvenation. Choose from rooms with panoramic views of Sydney’s incredible harbour, the grounds or the historic buildings of Q Station.

Manly Surfside Apartments

Manly Surfside Apartments are just about as close as you can get to the event site at North Steyne on Manly Beach. Enjoy the uninterrupted ocean views from most of the rooms featured at Manly Surfside Holiday Apartments, allowing you to choose from a range of serviced apartment accommodations.

The property is perfectly located adjacent to the beautiful Manly Beach and Harbour Foreshore, including large living and dining areas, marble bathrooms and en-suites, European appliances in the granite kitchens, balconies, and other entertainment areas. All in all, Manly Surfside Holiday Apartments is a great choice for both leisure and business travellers who are staying in Manly.

The Hotel Steyne

Located on the beachfront on the Manly Corso.

The Steyne as it’s affectionately known is one of Manly’s most iconic and original venues and these days it can nourish you for every meal of the day, (especially beer O’clock).

The Steyne is the official venue partner for the 2018 Vissla Sydney Surf Pro and will play host some of the most amazing off-beach activations including an indoor skate ramp, VIP parties, incredible raffles. The Steyne also offers accommodation for couples, families or groups, shared or private. It’s the most convenient and affordable location central to our huge festival.  

Belgrave Cartel

Located at 6 Belgrave St, Manly

Since Belgrave Cartel’s opening in 2010 this cafe come-wine-bar has become Manly’s favourite hangout. Inspired by the neighbourhood cafes and bars of Paris, Cartel is an intimate low-lit space with a unique European style.

Cartel’s feisty pesto laced breakfast and rich signature coffee blend are a staple for visitors. An ever-changing lunch and dinner menu is on offer comprising of perfect pastas, beautiful tapas plates, and to-die-for desserts. The bar is open until late and offers cold beers, a hand picked wine list, and a signature cocktail menu.

Manly restaurants, cafes & bars are well known for their quality and variety and Belgrave Cartel is well and truly a part of the unique culinary repertoire Manly has to offer. When you step inside you are instantly hit with the impression you are in a quality venue.

Gelatissimo

Located at Manly Wharf Shopping Centre, East Esplanade, Kiosk 2

Need a delectable icy-cold sweet treat on a hot Sydney summer’s day? Head on over to Gelatissimo for one of the most extensive ranges of fresh gelato. The team have won more awards for their gelato than events held at Manly Beach in the last hundred years and they’ll even let you try before you decide!

Well, sometimes it’s not easy so to make sure you don’t miss your heat, or watching your favourite surfer compete, plan ahead.

There are six parking blocks in Manly, two have the less than two hours free policy. SEE LOCATIONS HERE. 

You can also get lucky with a spot along the beachfront or in the residential streets (for between 2 and 4 hours at a time), but beware council rangers patrol the area and if you stay longer than authorised you’ll more than likely end up with a fine around the $120 mark, so grab a ticket.

Check the Hello Manly page for the parking block locations and parking alternatives.

The 2019 Vissla Sydney Surf Pro would not be made possible without local community and business support. Surfing is so deeply ingrained in coastal towns and cities in Australia with the local, and long-time surfers being some of the key small business owners and operators. We encourage you to support those businesses during your stay in Manly.

In 2019 we thank the following businesses for their support:
