Manly Wharf is the place where the ferries from Sydney arrive at Manly. Over recent years, what was previously just the ferry dock has been developed into a zone of waterfront restaurants and bars, a shopping area and an entertainment centre. There is a small shallow sloping beach directly adjacent to the wharf and an aquatic centre very close by. Parasailing and boat and kayak hiring facilities are available.
Most visitors will reach the Wharf by the ferry from Sydney's Circular Quay for which an adult ticket costs AU$10.80 return.
